Business Mandeville - Paralympic Mascot

Very excited to show you the second mascot that I designed and painted earlier this year. This is Business Mandeville, at around 2m tall this smart business woman is ready for a busy day at the office, she was designed in order to capture this element of London life.

All 84 official Olympic and Paralympic Mascot sculptures are located at points of interest all around the capital including at Olympic and Paralympic locations and are part of the Mayor of London Presents programme of free cultural activities for the 2012 Games.

All mascots will be auctioned off with profits going to help fight child poverty in London.

The Stroll Discovery Trails event features over 80 sculptures of Wenlock, the official Olympic mascot and Mandeville, the official Paralympic mascot - on display around London during the summer.Mandeville is the official Paralympic Mascot.
