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

Standing Stone

Summary

Type Sculpture

     The work resembles two stylized, intertwined standing figures, rather like a 3D jigsaw puzzle. It is new and made of limestone, so it has a very clean, creamy appearance. The forms recall those of Celtic art, notably their illuminated manuscripts.
     This work is one of a series commissioned for Dudley's new Southern By-pass. For the driver or pedestrian, the road will provide a passage through time, whereby each artwork is loosely inspired by an era.
