Truith The Boar

The sculpture of Truith the Boar is situated in a woodland glade at Sandy Water Park along Llanelli’s Millennium coastal path. Truith the Boar features in the Mabinogion tale “The Wooing of Olwen”.

Although the use of reclaimed steel objects might not be an obvious medium to sculpt such a traditional subject, it is most fitting that some of the reclaimed steel objects came from the area’s derelict industrial sites prior to its rejuvenation, linking the sculpture to the site’s industrial past as well as the historical folklore of the area.
