Mark Jalland’s sculpture, a giant stainless steel origami style dinosaur, takes its inspiration from the former paper-making industry in Radcliffe. The reflective materials respond to different light and weather conditions.

The artist worked with Radcliffe Hall Primary School and choreographer Ruth Jones to come up with ideas for three new sculptures in Close Park to ensure the sculptures reflected the fun and playfulness of the park.
