Paul Margetts - Sculptor
Daimler Green Entrance Sculpture, Coventry

Entrance sculpture for the Daimler Green housing development in Radford, Coventry.
The site was previously the home of the car makers  Daimler and more recently Jaguar. The company moved its manufacturing to the new plant at Brown's Lane, and the site is now residential. The developers requested a sculpture that recognised the important role that the factory had played in the lives of the people who worked in it and lived beside it.

The sculpture is 5 metres high on a 700mm brick plinth.

The front details show the emblems of Jaguar and Daimler while the details on the rear describe the change of use of the area from industrial to residential.
