Heathrow welcomes a post-Olympic arrival

Jill Berelowitz's Diving Girl

A sculpture from the London Olympics Village has found a temporary new home at Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5. The Diving Girl, 2012, by the Johannesburg-born artist Jill Berelowitz will be splashing down in the terminal's Expo Gallery tomorrow evening. Although the 3.5m-high bronze sculpture will be a permanent fixture at Heathrow "for the foreseeable future", according to a spokeswoman, the work is also for sale, number three of nine editions, with a price tag of £35,000. The fate of other works created for the Games, including large-scale works by Marc Quinn and Damien Hirst, remains a mystery.
