The walking Madonna by Elisabeth Frink was initially installed as a temporary exhibit in October 1981 on the lawns just outside Salisbury cathedral but remains there nearly 40 years later.

She is shown walking purposefully away from the cathedral ‘moving out from the worship to where human needs are to be met, not just in Salisbury, but in the whole world’ as the then Dean of Salisbury commented.
