Toad - Reflective ColoursLarkin with Toads
Sue Kershaw & Victoria Merrett
Large toad covered with mosaic in different colours.
It is one of the forty colourful, artist-decorated toad sculptures placed around Hull as part of the 'Larkin 25' celebrations, marking the 25th anniversary of the death of poet Philip Larkin. It was Hull’s largest ever public art project. For three months, from 21st July to 25th September 2010, the streets were populated with these 40 toads. Larkin lived in Hull for the last 30 years of his life and the sculptures are inspired by his poems 'Toads' and 'Toads Revisited'.The toad 'Reflective Colours', decorated by Sue Kershaw, is in 2013 placed in the garden of the Streetlife Museum and is probably the only one left. In 2010 it stood in Queen Street.
