Long Description:
This is a fun piece of sculpture with a strange title of ‘Graduate Training’. It is made from painted steel and rope.

It was created by Adam Reynolds in 1998 and commissioned by property developers, Magnus Ltd. They paid £8000 for the work when they were redeveloping the building. According to his website “the figure at the top of the building is becoming annoyed at the climbers’ ineptitude and slow progress”.
Title of Piece: Graduate Training

Artist: Adam Reynolds

Material/Media: Painted Steel and Rope
