The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth, but not the Mineral Rights

The Chapman’s three dinosaurs “The Good”, “The Bad” and “The Ugly” placed at the base of the Gherkin.

The Chapman brothers are taking part in London’s 2013 Sculpture in the City programme with their infamous work The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth, but not the Mineral Rights. The three piece corten steel sculpture of large scale dinosaurs reminiscent of make-your-own children play-sets was first exhibited in the Royal Academy’s Annenberg Courtyard at the occasion of the 2007 Summer Exhibition and famously refers to Paul Getty, said to have made the remark “The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth, but not the Mineral Rights”.

The sculptures measure more than eight meters in length and tower up to seven meters high and are currently on view in the Eastern part of London’s City, in the heart of the Square Mile.
