The work comprises ten granite blocks in a circle surrounding a huge stone seat. This central double seated throne is fashioned from five stones and is carved with natural motifs. The north facing seat celebrates the water aspects so central to the site, the south facing seat celebrates the sun and earth. Images of natural life are carved in relief.
The granite standing stones are not carved but retain the holes and marks of their previous industrial use. All 15 blocks were retrieved from the foundations of 'Victoria', a massive Cornish beam engine, installed on the site in 1859.
Funded by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, Countryside Commission, Greater London Arts, Skinners Company, Lady Neville Charity. The artist joined with local schools and community groups in the course of the work.
