A giant spinal sculpture, with twenty-four female torsos taking the place of curved vertebra, has been installed in Cavendish Square today.

Cast in bone-coloured resin, Core Femme by Jill Berelowitz is the latest addition to Westminster City Council’s City of Sculpture Festival, which will see works of art transform the centre of the capital into an open air gallery in the build up to the 2012 Olympic Games and Diamond Jubilee.

Core Femme is the seventh sculpture to have been installed, joining the likes of the Jelly Baby sculpture in Marble Arch, Lorenzo Quinn's Vroom Vroom - a black Fiat grasped in a child's hand – on Park Lane, and Bruce Denny’s human-sized sculptures in Soho Square.
