The Staffordshire Saxon
Inside Potteries Museum & Art Gallery,
Bethesda Street ,
Sculptor: Andy Edwards. Inspired by the Staffordshire Hoard, a treasure trove of Anglo-Saxon gold, this towering 9ft warrior is adorned with items reproduced from this amazing dark age collection. He brings to life intricately designed gold sword pommels, helmet fragments and knife fittings by showing how a 7th century battle clad warrior would have looked wearing them. Part of the Staffordshire Hoard is permanently on display inside the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery.
