Displacement of Species

A glimpse of Alison's sculpture 'Displacement of Species'

Sculptor: Alison Lochhead

The figures within Alison Lochhead’s 'Displacement of Species' are formed using a variety of materials from places associated with Dyffryn Gardens, and is designed to represent the displacement of materials and people from one place to another.

Overlooking the gardens, the three sculptures are at the top of the rockery by the fernery.

" Many different people have inhabited the Dyffryn land, from the Neolithic burial chambers nearby to the gardeners who went to war. Plants were brought from every quarter of the world funded by the extraction of coal from the land, which was shipped out to every quarter of the world. The gardens you are walking through are created from the movement of resources across the world."
