The artwork was inspired by local artist Sybil Andrews’ tapestry, which is on display in St Edmundsbury Cathedral, as well as work by the artist Giacometti & medieval paintings.

The sculpture was funded with locality grants from Bury St Edmunds Town Councillors Diane Hind, Cliff Waterman, Marilyn Sayer & Donna Higgins, together with West Suffolk Councillor David Nettleton.
