One man and his dog are looking upon the Silloth sunshine in a new steel sculpture built for the Cumbrian town.
Named 'Sunset', the 2.7 metre high creation is the culmination of four months work by artist Ray Lonsdale.
It depicts the man reclining on a bench, looking at the Solway Firth and shielding his eyes from the sun.
Lonsdale has made more than a dozen sculptures across the north of England, including one in Grenta Green of two hands clasping.
Peter Richardson, a Silloth resident, was so impressed by his work he requested one for the town.
Mr Richardson has since died but town mayor Mark Orchard hopes the structure will be a fitting tribute.
- His son Paul ensured that the sculpture was finally put in place on Silloth seafront.
