Godiva Awakes

Created in Coventry as part of the Cultural Olympiad, a six metre high marionette, propelled by teams of cyclists and high tech electronic puppeteering took part in a carnival procession, before making its ways down to London. The design and engineering involved West Midland companies and volunteer cyclists trained to manoeuvre the chariot and puppet. The dress was designed by Zandra Rhodes.
