Lynn Chadwick’s series of winged figures grew out of earlier dancing groups and proved to be a rich seam in his work. A memorial to commemorate the first two-way crossing of the Atlantic by the Airship R34 in July 1919 was one such figure. This work is typical of Chadwick’s skill as a welder, which together with his early training as an architectural draughtsman, provided him with a strong sense of structure , line and constructed form.
