The Royal Society of Sculptors is delighted to be showcasing the work of Naomi Blake FRBS with an outdoor exhibition on the sculpture terrace - free for all to enjoy. The exhibition celebrates Blake as part of the Society’s ‘Pioneering Women’ project, which shines a spotlight on the lives, careers and legacies of the talented and extraordinary women at the heart of the organisation.

Naomi Blake was a Fellow of the Society and her story really is one of the most extraordinary. After surviving Auschwitz and escaping a Nazi death march, she started a new life in Palestine and was involved in Israel’s war of independence. It was during her recovery from a shot wound that she started to carve an olive branch and commenced her awe-inspiring journey as a sculptor. Blake’s sculptures symbolise hope and optimism in the face of adversity, a message which surely resonates with us all at the moment.

The works on display are:

Memorial to the Holocaust, 1999
Man Against The Odds III, 1986
Sanctuary, 1985
