Still Point
Still Point
The Still Point is a sculpture carved from Cumbrian sand stone by Colin Spofforth commissioned by Argent Group in 2008 and installed in 2009.

It is found somewhat hidden within the courtyard of the Piccadilly Place group of highrise offices and Motel One between London Road and Aytoun Street.

The four figures represent human forms whilst remaining stone like. The 2m tall figures stand within a polished granite circle. Around the base is a quotation "At the still point of the turning world. Neither the flesh not fleshness. Neither from nor toward; at the still point, there the dance is, but neither arrest nor movement. Where the past and future gathered. T.S.Eliot."
