Larger than life - James Butler's Oxfordshire studio with the remains of his clay sculpture of the Queen from which the bronze cast was made.
A huge statue of Queen Elizabeth II is being finished off at Lockbund Foundry near Banbury in Oxfordshire - before its unveiling at Runnymede to celebrate the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta.
At over twice life size the imposing bronze sculpture by James Butler will dominate the historic meadow where the divine right of Kings was first checked.
It shows the Queen in full Garter Robes and has been inspired by the 1954 portraits by Pietro Annigoni. The 4m (13ft) bronze sculpture will be unveiled on 14 June.
