Work is underway to construct a landmark sculpture for Weymouth.
Artist Richard Harris has created the sculpture titled ‘Jurassic Stones’. The picture above shows an artist impression of the sculpture.
The sculpture will be created using boulders which were revealed in Southdown Ridge when work began in preparation for the new road.
The idea of incorporating art in the development of the relief road was proposed in the Weymouth and Portland Commissioning Plan for 2012. The project has received funding from Arts Council England.
Subject to weather, the sculpture is due to be finished in December.
