A sculpture of a seated female figure originally purchased for Stifford Estate in Stepney but moved to Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 1997 when the estate's tower blocks were due for demolition.

In 2015, the new Mayor of Tower Hamlets pledged to bring the sculpture back to the borough and Cabot Square was chosen as its temporary home. The reinstatement of this important piece of the borough's artistic heritage was funded by Canary Wharf Group on behalf of London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
