A life-size, bronze sculpture of a running girl, resembling the freeze-frame effects of time-lapse photography or an Italian Futurist painting come to life, to recreate the child’s energetic movement. For the sculptor, the girl’s youthful vigour had a broader significance: ‘I have tried to show movement by merging three figures together to form one. The artwork is similar to a statue of a boy pretending to fly ('F-F-Flyer') in the same area. The artist acknowledged that he was ‘continuing the theme of movement and children’, to give ‘a sense of continuity between both housing developments.’
