Best viewed from above, this sculpture representing the planet incorporates 10 granite blocks salvaged from the old docks. A key element, as originally conceived was the water, which could be interpreted as representing the Earth’s oceans. Unfortunately, this feature of the sculpture has now been boarded over. The last images sets to feature the water were taken in 2008.
