Fortuna is Helaine Blumenfeld’s most ambitious work to date. Commissioned for Canary Wharf Group’s new district, under construction, this monumental sculpture was inspired by Fortuna, the Roman goddess of luck, and evokes the fullness and complexity of the human condition.
Best known for her large-scale outdoor commissions, Blumenfeld is passionate about bringing sculpture into public spaces. Notable works in London include Tempesta overlooking Hyde Park, and Meridiana in Holland Park.
