The piece, called ‘The Jurors’ by artist Hew Locke, has been installed at Runnymede, Surrey, where King John sealed the original document in 1215. It was unveiled to the Queen and other members of the Royal family, as well as Prime Minister David Cameron.

The installation includes 12 bronze chairs, casted by Sarah Craske and her team at Meltdowns Studios in Ramsgate.
