Date: 2000 The spine was commissioned for Langthorne Park, An ambitious new Inner city Public space. The sculpture/bench for Langthorn Park is sited within the Ecology area looking across the lake. It is constructed from oak railway sleepers, this reflects the heritage of Leytonstone and the importance of the railway to the development of the area. The shape twists and turns like that of a tadpole or a snake. Spine-like in construction it resembles a fossil or the skeletal remains of a once great creature.
