The seatwall stretches alongside the Cardiff Bay Trail from the World Harmony Peace Statue of Sri Chinmoy, down to the Norwegian Church.
LOCATION: Waterfront Park, Cardiff Bay
This seatwall is not a part of the Jewish history of Cardiff, but has been included because it is one of the few public examples of written Hebrew.
Commissioned by the Cardiff Bay Arts Trust, it was sculpted by Meic Watts in 1992. Fossil-like marks, in sandstone dock coping stones, reflect the passage of time. These marks are now wearing away. By the Norwegian Church there is a verse written in seventeen different languages, including Hebrew, that were spoken in the area:
"Sing with me on the quayside, sing by the light of the moon. Dance through a carpet of coal dust, torn from mother earth's womb."
