Hastings seafront will display the winning sculpture of a commission by the local council and Fairlight Arts Trust.
'Helter Skelter' by Henry Krokatsis is a thirteen metre structure of a traditional helter skelter and lighthouse.
The inspiration for the artwork includes the history of Hastings as a former 'Cinque Port' as well as the seafront's fairground tradition.
Artist Henry Krokatsis said: "I want to make a work that draws on its surroundings - the net huts, the tradition of pier entertainments, Hastings' former role as a harbour and the makeshift constructions originally built on the nearby America Ground."
