With public celebrations and events taking place throughout the UK this weekend, British artist Nic Joly – who specialises in creating miniature wall sculptures – has produced a new piece in honour of the longest reigning Monarch in British history.

Named ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ the hand-signed, framed wall sculpture is being produced in an edition size of 90 – a nod to HM The Queen’s age.

It features The Queen holding a 90th balloon underneath a string of miniature bunting with one of her beloved corgis at her side.

Nic Joly originally started sculpting as a hobby, crafting the miniature characters out of clay, paper and wire to hide around his home for his children to find.

In time, this passion escalated into a full time profession, which now sees him represent observations on life on a miniature scale. Each intricate figure is created by hand without a magnifying glass before being cast in bronze and painted.
