Commuters walking through More London on Monday morning were greeted by human recreations of the Burghers of Calais and The Thinker.

The human sculptures were part of a programme of events to mark Ernst & Young's sponsorship of the new Rodin exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts,

Ernst & Young's reception area at More London this week houses a six tonne sand block as two professional sculptors get to work recreating Rodin's The Kiss.

Recreations of Rodin's work by young people who took part in the Art Matters initiative, a joint venture between NCH, the children's charity, and Ernst & Young, will also be on display.

Jane Phillips, arts manager at Ernst & Young, says that the sand sculpture will "no doubt turn a few heads both from inside and outside the building throughout the week".

She added: "All our people will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition at the Royal Academy but these activities taking place in our building brings so much fun to the offices and will help to raise awareness and excitement of the exhibition and engage our people in our arts initiatives."
