'Soldier Bending a Bow' was originally housed in the former Sports Centre but has since been relocated to Harlow Playhouse. Several larger versions of the work exist, for example, in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Louvre. Although attributed to Bousseau, it is signed by the seventeenth-century sculptor, Pierre Puget. This may be a nineteenth-century copy after Bousseau.
