Iron Man Of Steel

This sculpture is made only from off-cuts from the companies scrap bin. It not only saves the sponsor money for the commission it reduces the environmental impact of the sculpture. The sculpture stands at just over 2 metres. Originally conceived and built for Corus Steel with the intenshions of being installed at the roadmender arts centre Northamption,to highlight its history as a boxing club and gym.Unfortunately the centre was closed down by the council at the end of 2005 just before its installation.
