Designed as one of a number of 'gateways' to the Birmingham Heartlands, this massive sculpture evokes the shape of a wave or a chipping curling off a block of wood. The piece has been covered in a paint which is supposed to be illuminated with ultra-violet light to be seen at its best effect, but this has not been put into effect.
Constructed in several sections by a metalworking foundry, there were problems with the final construction on site which delayed its completion, and the artist had to finish the work herself.
