Sculpture description:
DIHELION is a sundial telling time. It steps into a world of sculpture where time is brought to life by sunshine. Formed in steel and galvanised to withstand all of the elements outdoors. Pierced with the shapes of sunflowers creating beautiful effects of light and shadow. Painted in special gold that catches the sun.
Artist's comments:
This sundial has been inspired by lovely sunflowers that reach to follow sunlight. Dihelion takes on a double form of two sundials joined as one showing time of day and time of year by two distinctive shadows.

Customer comment on 'Little Owl (Small Carved Wood on Post carvings/statues/statuettes)' by Nigel Sardeson
Hi Thank you for providing me with such a great service and wonderful sculpture I can say more.... It`s a present for my fathers 80th and the perfect thing to have found for someone who already has most things! He`s an ornithologist too and adores the garden.
