SWLP Re-launch


Ship Builder


The focal point is a free standing cast-iron sculpture, 2.4m in height. The piece features four figures from history - a Monk, a Miller, a Marine Engineer and a Miner - each carrying a symbol of their industry. Above them, a boat, its oars aloft resembling stylised trees, represents progress propelled by Nature. The sculpture conveys a positive message of renewal and regeneration, of Man's reliance on Nature and is intended to encourage the viewer to question their influence on the world around them.

  1. Very nice, it has a 'four tetrarchs' kind of feel to it, hmm? You should carve it into Imperial Porphyry (yikes, just kidding).
