Relocation of the Prow

The ProwThe former centerpiece of Villiers Square, the stainless steel sculpture known as The Prow, has been relocated.

Created by CAMM Design of Birkenhead in 2006 the sculpture, based on the ceremonial prow of a Viking ship, has been re-positioned at the junction of North Quay and Market Hill. Douglas Development Partnership manager Chris Pycroft explained: ‘The Prow acknowledges the Island’s Viking and Norse connections yet also depicts the present-day Isle of Man through maritime, heritage, motor sport and finance sector symbols incorporated into its surface detailing.

‘Given The Prow’s strong seafaring references its new landmark location down by the harbour is more appropriate, adds to the unique streetscape of the North Quay and endows the sculpture, a symbol of the Island’s maritime past, with the prominence it merits.’
