This was one of the first major commissions of my woodcarving career. As with other Public Art commissions I have carried out, there was a long incubation period during which I gathered my visual reference material, took many photographs, filled a sketchbook, and made lots of drawings, arriving at a full-size cartoon which I used to produce the carved panels. Altogether I spent about a year making this piece. Installed 1992, photographed again 23 June 2015.
