Bernard Reynold’s Parrot Head was commissioned for the newly created Sculpture Garden above Castle Mall Shopping Centre in Norwich by the Norfolk Contemporary Art Society in consultation with the garden’s designer Georgina Livingston.
Reynolds developed the sculpture from an earlier smaller series of Parrot Head sculptures, and the form was based on the skull of a macaw which belonged to Cedric Morris. Sir Cedric Morris (1889-1892) moved to Suffolk in 1929 and established the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing.
