Rolling Moon

Colin Rose's Rolling Moon.

Originally made for Gateshead's site at the Glasgow Garden Festival (1988), Rolling Moon was subsequently relocated on the banks of the Tyne in 1990.

Rolling Moon is situated between the High Level Bridge and the Queen Elizabeth II, and its majestic curve links it visually, though incidentally, to the structure of the Tyne Bridge. Visible at a distance from across the river, the sculpture nestles quite discreetly into the bankside, waiting to be chanced upon by walkers on the Gateshead side.
