Andrew McKeown’s sculpture is a sycamore seed, which has been enlarged one hundred times. Cast in iron, the sculpture represents new life and growth emerging from the decline of the traditional engineering and manufacturing industries of the area.

Located in the Chapel Street area of Salford, it symbolises the future and the potential this area has to grow and prosper from the seeds that were planted by the 2002 Regeneration Strategy.
