This image shows a section of one of the Terris Novalis sculptures by Tony Craggs, situated at Castleside near Consett in County Durham.
This entire work consists of two magnified measuring instruments supported on sculptured animal 'feet'.
The work stands as a monument to the history of this industrial area and marks what was once Europe's largest steel works.
Cast in solid stainless steel, this landmark should be seen as a monument to local industry and its tragic demise.
The hand of steel lies in exhausted resignation, but there is still a glint of light at its fingertips.
