Sugar cube sculptures go on show
The artist made sugar cube portraits of five black heroes
Life-size portraits of black heroes made from sugar cubes are going on display to mark 200 years of the abolition of the slave trade.
The exhibition at St Paul's Cathedral in London, titled For Love of Sugar, showcases five personalities from 18th and 19th Century Britain.
Artist Satch Hoyt has also created two slave ships from sugar, to be displayed at the museum in the Docklands.
George Bridgetower, a violin prodigy, is among those featured.
The exhibition runs until 12 July.
