“This sculpture depicts the ‘gafrod’ of marram grass, harvested and drying in the sun.

“Newborough residents used to harvest the grass every two years and leave it to dry from its green colour to a golden yellow. ‘Gafrod’ was a local term for the bundles of marram standing on end, gathered and tied at the top with a plaited cord of marram.

“Designed by Ann Catrin Evans with the assistance of Newborough’s residents and children.

“Commissioned by the Countryside Council for Wales”
