2003 by Danny Lane. Next to The Gate. A 9m high glass sculpture, made up of six separate glass monoliths held together by a steel post-tensioning rod, standing on a stainless steel plinth with a hole punched through it. Commissioned by Grainger Town Partnership. The name is a play on words based on its form of the intersection of two circles (or elipses) like the eclipse of the moon or sun. Unveiled in March 2005. Commissioned by Grainger Town Partnership.
