  1. This is an interesting and abstract piece of public art. Do you know the story behind it? I’ve never seen anything like it. Thanks for sharing, Lin. πŸ™‚

    • I think I saw a plaque but I couldn’t remember what it said so I looked it up and I quote ‘The Way is a sculpture in Portland stone, by Hamish Horsley, located in Wharton Park, Durham. It was originally exhibited in the Gateshead Garden Festival in 1990, under the title of ‘Aion’, as part of the British Rail sponsored ‘Time Garden’. In 1994, the work was (temporarily?) relocated to Durham and remodelled by the sculptor for the new setting, aiming to symbolise the journey of St Cuthbert’s remains to Durham and the building of the Cathedral.
