The twelve Trusts (Northumberland, Durham, Tees Valley, Yorkshire, Sheffield & Rotherham, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Rutland, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Northamptonshire, Norfolk, Suffolk), located across the east coast of England, aim to make the concept of 'Living Seas' a reality through a project which will promote protection of the North Sea's rich and diverse marine wildlife, from the depths of the ocean to the coastal shallows.
Sunderland artwork celebrates the rich cultural heritage of the City of Sunderland, granted city status in 1992. Magnificent black panthers, which signify the city's pride in Sunderland Association Football Club and its Blackcats mascots, assemble on the Wearmouth Bridge. Layered elements include the Penshaw Monument and the launch of cargo ship Victoria City, symbolising the legacy of Sunderland's proud shipbuilding industry. Striding across the bridge is a representation of a black cat caricature from a 1930’s football card. Homage to the city's glassmakers is paid through the glass like appearance of sections of the Wearmouth Bridge, the sparkling eyes of the panthers and glass tug boats sailing down the river Wear. The ghost like presentation of the little boats suggests the demise of the region’s shipyards. Sitting on top of the bridge next to the large panther is an effigy of the black cat that lived at SAFC’s legendary Roker Park Stadium during the early 1900s. An illuminated twilight setting emphasises the city’s monumental landmarks in this deconstruction of the city of Sunderland coat of arms.
