A new piece of sculpture has appeared on the Thames foreshore in Limehouse. But rather than the usual fanfare, the new arrival has been quietly put in place.
Entitled Another Time it is a life size figure by the well-known sculptor Antony Gormley creator of the iconic Angel of the North.
The piece was rumoured to be acquired by Sir Ian McKellen and now takes pride of place behind his pub the Grapes.
It is part of a series of figures created by Gormley which have been put human figures next to water.
Standing on top of a post the figure will look at certain times that it will be standing on the water, but will never be fully submerged.
Some of the best views will be from the river, however it can be viewed from Dunbar Wharf.
Or of course you can go into the Grapes itself and view from the small terrace at the back.
