A bronze abstract figurine has been stolen from an art gallery in Tunbridge Wells.
Measuring around 39cm high, the distinctive sculpture was taken from a display at the Castle Fine Art gallery in the High Street last month, after a member of staff was deliberately distracted.
Three men entered shortly after 3pm on July 25. One of the suspects, described as being of mixed race, aged in his 40s and around 6ft 4in, approached an employee and started a conversation.
The other two men, both white, moved to an area that was out of sight. After they left, the figurine was discovered missing. It was part of a pair but only one was stolen.
It is believed the suspects will attempt to sell the item and officers are urging members of the public, as well as collectors and dealers, to keep their eyes open for anything suspicious.
