Archimedes under the arches

Under the arches of the railway viaduct stretching from Piccadilly to Oxford Road is a statue of Archimedes. The stone statue shows a life sized Archimedes leaping naked from his bath whilst experiencing his "eureka moment". It was created by the artist Thompson Dagnall and unveiled in September 1990.

In the background is the Technology Arch SJ8497 : Technology Arch, a sculpture by Axel Wolkenhauer.
