Long Description:
This terracotta sculpture, placed in 1999, forms two bench seats at right angles to each other. The seats are formed by what appears to be two females. or one female with two faces, and large feet.

"Rhiannon Seating - A carved brick benche. The terracotta bricks for the new artwork were supplied by Dennis of Ruabon, the same Wrexham tile and brick company which supplied the Pierhead's decorative panels one hundred years earlier. Cardiff Bay Arts Trust was established in 1990 as part of a policy on public art set out by Cardiff Bay Development Corporation. Over the first decade CBAT has worked with public institutions, private corporations and with the local community to enrich the experience for those who visit, live and work in the area. Following the wind up of CBDC, Cardiff Bay Arts Trust became CBAT The Arts & Regeneration Agency and continues to operate UK wide and internationally." Text Source: (visit link)
