Weston Park

Scenic & Props

Coelondanta Antiquitatis, or Coe as he was nicknamed, is a 20,000 year old woolly rhino who has now taken up residence at Sheffield’s new £17 million Weston Park Museum. It took our sculptor, Richard, over two months to sculpt Coe, under  the critical eye of Paul Richards, the curator of Natural History from the museum. He started life as a very big block of  polystyrene (that’s Coe, not Paul), and was finally, and somewhat ungraciously lowered into position in the gallery slung from a forklift truck. As well as providing the woolly rhino, we have also supplied and installed other elements including giant ants, polar bear cubs, a prehistoric coral reef with fish and sea-life, topographical map models, Saxon swords and helmets, and a reconstruction of a Victorian back yard.
