The sculpture, Wish, is a landmark within Park Central that embodies three principles: regeneration, integration and sustainability.
The tri-form suggestive of the three partners is an archetypal tree symbol used since Egyptian times. Attwood is a family name that originates from the translation De Bosco meaning ‘of the wood’.
The internal space of the sculpture is enclosed, like a hollow oak tree – historically used as place of refuge or congregation.
The higher space contains a reflective seed like form, suggestive of potential growth and renewal, in which we see ourselves to be a part.
As you walk around the sculpture you experience a changing landscape of architectural symmetry and organic woodland. Look in the polished granite surface, make a wish and see it there reflected.
