As visitors to Leeds reach the edges of the city center there’s a council site at Quarry Hill, which also houses the Northern Ballet, one of the country’s foremost theatre companies.
Guarding the entrance to the site are two metal-painted figures, partially emerging from two huge columns of Woodkirk Yorkstone that tower above as visitors approach.
London artist Ray Smith created the two sculptures in 1995 after receiving a commission from Leeds City Council.
Know Before You Go
The sculptures are situated a short walk from the bus station and can be found at the entrance to the Quarry Hill Site. There is limited parking there and some street parking within a short distance.
