The finished arch

Archway at Kilvey Hill, Swansea
 carved by Nansi Hemming
Winter/Spring 2001

This piece was carved from a large curved oak trunk sawn down the middle. The design includes intertwining beech and oak trees with woodland life; as well as panels depicting local scenes from prehistory to the present day.  It stands as an archway over the footpath entrance to Swansea Council's sculpture and wildlife park on Kilvey Hill, a reclaimed waste dumping site above the city.  It was erected on March 22nd. 2001.
