Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens

The statue of Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens by sculptor George Frampton was commissioned by J. M. Barrie and erected overnight on 30 April 1912 as a May Day surprise to the children of London. It was supposed to be modelled upon photographs of Michael Llewelyn Davies at the age of six, dressed as the character. However, Frampton used a different child as his model, leaving Barrie very disappointed with the result. "It doesn't show the devil in Peter," the writer said.
