Striking visual attraction

The artwork is inspired by points of interest that are situated along the famous Chiltern Way and historic Icknield Way, including Whipsnade Zoo and Ivinghoe Beacon. It consists of two brick walls, built by Taylor Wimpey, with 20 ceramic relief circles that are linked along a linear map of the two Ways.

The overall effect of the artwork creates a striking visual attraction encouraging residents to walk through the sculpture and make use of the space whilst providing informative and aesthetic functions.
