Artist:        Michael Verdon
Location:   Nobber
Materials:  Steel

 

Cross Sundial by Michael Verdon is a striking yellow steel structure measuring 1.2 x .9 x .9 meters.

A Cross Sundial (or cruciform or crucifix dial) is a dial in the form of a cross with the "front" surface of the cross parallel to the equatorial plane, and the top pointing south. The cross sundial is a universal sundial and can be used anywhere in the world.

This semispherical work, originally commissioned in 1989 by Meath County Council, sat outside Trim Library for many years.

As Trim Library enters an exciting stage of redevelopment to facilitate a new library and community theatre, the Cross Sundial sculpture was relocated to a new home in Nobber on the mainstreet.
