This is a maquette for a proposed monumental sculpture intended to commemorate all those who worked in the tough conditions of the North Wales mining industry.

It will be accompanied by an inscription which reads:

‘Roeddem yr llawer, roeddem yn un’ / ‘We were many, we were one’

With a model figure to show proposed scale of the final version.
