‘The People’s Gnome’ was created in 2000 by Heather Forrester, and is part of a collection depicting prominent British politicians of the time. This gnome is a caricature of Prime Minsiter Tony Blair. MPs John Prescott, Robin Cook and Jack Straw also feature in Forrester’s collection. In an interview with the New York Times, Forrester said ‘The People’s Gnome’ was the most popular in the collection. He has a wide grin and sliver spade embedded with the crowned portcullis, the emblem of both Houses of Parliament.
