Looking along Tib Street towards SJ8498 : The Tib Street Horn, a bizarre combination part saxophone, part dragon. The Horn was created in 1999 by Cornish Artist David Kemp as an urban landmark sculpture designed to announce the gateway to Manchester's Northern Quarter.

David Kemp is well-known for his assemblage sculptures, a technique pioneered by Picasso who had the revolutionary idea that sculpture can be made from existing objects brought together as a 3-D collage.
