Description

A striking brick mosaic on the side of a building on Castle Street by Paul Waplington. It was commissioned by the council in the 1980s to commemorate the steel industry of Sheffield.

It is based on a real steelworker, but modified so that it would work with the size of the bricks used. As a result the eyes are much bigger than the man the mosaic was modelled on.
