The slate and Carrara marble Hedd Dros Wynedd / Peace Across Gwynedd wall sculpture Jonah created in 1972 for the North Wales Police HQ in Colwyn Bay was one of his largest commissions, second only in size to Y Bont in Coleg Harlech. It was tragically destroyed in 2002 during a refurbishment when builders, without consulting anyone, ripped it out and threw the parts onto a skip.
Scene & Word commissioned South African photographer Leah Rolando to develop this new range of photographic treatments from an original photograph taken by Robert Greetham when the sculpture was still intact. Her brief was to use subtle colour and dynamic editing to evoke the experience of viewing the sculpture from close up.
