‘Seeds of Enterprise’ takes the form of sycamore seeds, which have been enlarged two hundred times. The sculpture represents new life and growth emerging from the ground where once proud coal mines stood. The development of Leeds City Region Enterprise Zone has planted the seeds of growth, creating a new environment for new business to prosper. ‘Seeds of Enterprise’ will be a striking symbol of this new future and new life.

At seven metres tall, ‘Seeds of Enterprise’ is an imposing icon, a huge landmark instantly recognisable, a new symbol of confidence and aspiration.
