Ai WeiWei - Zodiac Heads

Ai's huge bronze heads of animals from the Chinese zodiac form a semi-circle in the courtyard of Somerset House this summer. They are intriguing and somewhat scary. I am year of the tiger (which looks rather ursine) 


but my favourite was the dragon.



Worth swinging by and taking a look at your birth year animal if you are in the vicinity at any point in the next couple of months. We know where the heads are, but where's their creator?
