All the work was made as the 'Centenary Sculptures', I created three stone figures which were later replaced with the stone columns.  The figures can be referred to as work leading to the other?  I never thought of them as something other than fulfilling the marking of the 100 year celebration. My concept regarding the growth of knowledge and the anchoring to grounded-ness is I suppose slightly irrelevant.  The columns material is Belfast granite, and bronze. The figures have an internal stainless steel structure, and then Belfast granite, nuts and bolts and some of the stones have been cast in bronze.
