Mr Monkey in London, December 1st

"If he really did that dance there, he'd land in the middle of the road"

Mr Monkey looking at the Locking Piece Mr Monkey looking at Jeté

After he left the Tate Britain, Mr Monkey took a quick walk up Millbank towards Vauxhall Bridge, looking for sculptures. On the other side of the road he spotted Locking Piece by Henry Moore, which marks the top of a set of stairs used by prisoners from Millbank gaol when they were being transported to Australia. On the corner of a building he saw Jeté by Enzo Plazzotta, which is based on the idea that dancer David Wall might think it was a good idea to start a ballet halfway up a building.
