The Sculpture is called 'Chartist Man' sculpted by artist Sebastien Boyesen, and placed in March 2005.

The 25 feet tall Chartist Man is made of thousands of stainless steel flat washers welded together. This was intended to show there is strength in numbers. The washers can clearly be seen in the close up of his right foot shown in the listing gallery.

The Chartist were a group of Welshmen campaigning to get the vote for all Men

On the 4th November 1839 thousands of men marched into Newport opposing the ‘tyranny’ of a Parliament elected by fewer than a tenth of the male population.
