Have been driving past every day since this was installed without being aware of its significance. Lovely piece of artwork which is well kept. Needs light up at night.

A lovely display set on the corner of the Longshot Road. Why its there is beyond me but makes a nice display set among the flower beds. Pass it every day and never tire of looking at it. Great piece of art.

I took my two little girls to see this full sized model. I don't know who was more excited, me or my girls!! They sat in it and didn't want to get out. It's great to see.

The life sized sculpture is a great image used to attract people to read the story of the event. Could be jazzed up some with more story boards, and pictures but great to see !!
