This project was initiated by Bolsover District Council, who were looking for a public artwork which was inspired by the local community. A period of consultation and conversation was undertaken where several local stories were collected. The Sculptor Andrew Tebbs chose to focus on one particular local story; that of two coal miners who found two separate examples of very early dragonflies, as fossils.
