Upright motorised pole with rotating arms. W.J. Strachan suggests that the piece 'evokes feelings of youthful energy. A system of calculated curves contrasts with the concrete verticals and horizontals of the building.'
The sculpture was built at a cost of £12,500 in 1977 and was intended to be a monument to Swansea's city status. It was designed so that the arms would rotate very slightly once in 24 hours. A newspaper report from 1989 states that the motor had been switched off as the sculpture was not designed to cope with heavy Swansea rain which filled the underground motor.
