Sculpted by Michael Pegler on site from Millstone Grit this creature was inspired by an ancient ballad describing ‘The Derby Ram’ in mythical proportions.
“The Wool upon his back, Sir,
Reached up unto the sky,
The Eagles made their nests there, Sir,
For I heard the young ones cry!”......
The artwork was inspired by Derby’s Heritage and the growth of the Silk trade. ‘Bobbins' was funded by EMDA (East Midlands Development Agency) in collaboration with Derby City Council
