Artist's comments: 'Technically, the largest map was a challenge because of all the layers of sheet steel needed to build up the mountains and landscape. Each sheet is individually cut, and care is needed to find each piece and place them together to gradually build up the mountain peaks and form the valleys.' The sculpture weighs a quarter of a tonne and measures two meters width by a little over two metres in height. It is set on wheels so it can be displayed in other parts of the Senedd, and people are encouraged to touch the steel, to feel the mountain ranges and follow the route of the valleys and the dramatic coastline. 'I feel that I’ve got to know and appreciate Wales anew, every inch of the country. I hope people will feel the same and appreciate the beauty of the land, the waves of the mountain ranges and the shape of the country in a way that isn’t possible on a map or sat nav'.
