Ship

Artathon 7 of 47: Ship

Ship

The ‘Ship’ is located on the Civic Centre Roundabout and is passed by thousands of motorists each day who – for the most part – I would guess are oblivious to it’s meaning, as was I until I read the blurb in the Artathon brochure. Commissioned in 1971 it won the Otto Beit Medal for Sculpture for its designer Bernard Reynolds the following year, and “aims to symbolise ships and shipping of all periods, and therefore Ipswich’ s long history as a port”.
