National Recording Project


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

All Hands


Type Sculpture

     Two huge fists tightly clenching a rope.
     The work was sponsored by Norwest Holt Construction, recent winners of the Arts and Business Cymru Award for Best Sponsor of New Work.
     The inspiration for the design grew out of its location, the site of the former Glamorganshire Canal. The hands act as a reminder of the once busy canal and the physical efforts of canal workers pulling their boats along the canal with hefty ropes.
