Detail from: Memorial to 158 Squadron by Peter W. Naylor, 2009



Type Sculpture

     From 'The Bay and other Artwalks': "The sculptor has riveted copper plate onto a steel framework to create visual maritime echoes - from sails to fish scales and the feathers on a gull's wing. The form is built in two parts, an upper section resembling a sail and the lower suggesting a compass."
     Cardiff Bay Arts Trust was established in 1990 as part of a policy on public art set out by Cardiff Bay Development Corporation. Over the first decade CBAT has worked with public institutions, private corporations and with the local community to enrich the experience for those who visit, live and work in the area. Following the wind up of CBDC, Cardiff Bay Arts Trust became CBAT The Arts & Regeneration Agency and continues to operate UK wide and internationally.
