  • Located on the bank of the river, not far from the Millennium Bridge. you have to observe in detail each floor of symbols related to the sea. It's about eight meters high and is built of steel. At the foot is a plaque with the first two verses of a poem by the 19th-century American writer William Wadsworth Longfellow (although the plaque on the base does not indicate the author), dedicated to a Spanish student: "How strangely gleams through gigantic The red trees light of the forge, Wild beckoning shadows, Stalk through the forest, ever and anon. Rising and bending with the flickering flame Then flitting into darkness"

  • A very nice piece of public art on Newcastle quayside and cycle route 72. On our bike ride we took a moment to take it in, then headed off again.  more »
