Wor Jackie

  • Name: Wor Jackie
  • Location: Wallsend Library
  • Designed and descorated by: St Joseph's RC Primary School Aided, North Shields

Sculpture Description

Our design was inspired by our local history and regional identity. ‘Wor Jackie’ is a celebration of Geordie culture and a reflection of the changing landscape of local industry. The design and name of the sculpture was inspired by the folk song ‘When the Boat Comes in’. The pupils also wanted to show that, like Elmer, people are all different, but that they were all swimming in the same direction.
