Lutfur Rahman, Independent Mayor of Tower Hamlets: Keep Old Flo in Tower Hamlets

    1. Petition by

      Rushanara Ali

      United Kingdom

Tower Hamlets Mayor is considering putting Henry Moore’s masterpiece, the 'Draped Seated Woman’ up for auction. Nicknamed ‘Old Flo’, it was a gift to the people of Tower Hamlets and is part of the East End’s cultural heritage. We want to see the sculpture back in the East End where it belongs. We call on the Mayor of Tower Hamlets to think again and honour Moore's idealistic vision.

      The East End is now a major hotspot in the emerging arts scene. It is important to show where this inspiration started, therefore we need to keep this sculpture which is a part of this rich cultural history that continues to grow.

      I was born in Bethnal green and benefited greatly though the foresight of my ancestors in creating Victoria Park. "Old Flo" was a continuation of that policy that to be poor was not to be culturally bereft

      Local heritage which needs to be retained for the future.

      It was donated to the people that live there. The mayor has no say in it
