The sculpture is actually known as the 'Ring of Eternity' and the artists inspiration came from: "All things from Eternity are of like forms and come around in a full Circle."

The piece embodies the idea of nature meeting industry and how nature is reclaiming landscapes scarred by heavy industry. The piece represents the way in which both industry and nature play major roles in the story of coal itself. A large circle / ring has been chosen to reflect both the shapes of the Celtic ring and the pit wheel. This ring shape also symbolises the ring of eternity, and pays particular regard to the landscape of the locality, which was initially changed by human influence, but through time a natural healing process has occurred and the land has returned to a green landscape.

In addition, a floor mosaic has been installed around the base of the sculpture to add another dimension to the public artwork. 4 bronze roundels encased within the mosaic refer to historical events of the local area.
