Description"The 6.5 metre bronze sculpture standing on a bed of polished granite by the Norwegian artist, Nico Widerberg, was unveiled in November 2004 outside the new wing to the University of Northumbria Gallery to celebrate its reopening. The sculpture was commissioned by the City of Newcastle upon Tyne to produce a major piece of sculpture which would be placed outside the new wing of the Gallery. It forms part of a series of sculptures to mark the locations of the city's Hidden Rivers. The figure 'emerges' from the black granite 'river' which is some 20m immediately above the course of the Pandon Burn."
