“The Stone cherub; an enduring ‘Port icon that proudly adorns Newport bridge. Famously appropriated by The Stone Roses in 1994 during the recording of The Second Coming in Rockfield studios. The four winged cherubs have long been admired (and even stolen) over the years and remain stoic; as they keep watch over Newport whilst pedestrians join motorists and make they’re way across the River Usk below towards the legendary TJ’s (RIP), Rodney Parade and city beyond.”

This design has been lovingly produced by Newport born and bred artist Ben Meredith (as part of Art on The Hill 2020). If you have ever spent any time in Newport you know… ‘keep it safe’.

Ben has graciously donated a print of this work as our top prize in our trail prize draw (details on website). You can buy your very own Stone Cherub from Ben’s Linktree on Instagram.

“The Stone cherub; eicon Port ‘parhaus sy’n addurno pont Casnewydd yn falch. Cafodd ei feddiannu’n enwog gan The Stone Roses ym 1994 yn ystod recordiad The Second Coming yn stiwdios Rockfield. Mae’r pedair ceriwb adain wedi cael eu hedmygu (a hyd yn oed eu dwyn) dros y flynyddoedd ac yn parhau i fod yn stoc; wrth iddynt gadw llygad ar Gasnewydd tra bod cerddwyr yn ymuno â modurwyr ac yn gwneud eu ffordd ar draws yr Afon Usk islaw tuag at y TJ’s (RIP) chwedlonol, Gorymdaith Rodney a’r ddinas y tu hwnt.”

Cynhyrchwyd y dyluniad hwn yn gariadus gan yr artist Ben Meredith a anwyd ac a fagwyd yng Nghasnewydd (fel rhan o Art on The Hill 2020). Os ydych chi erioed wedi treulio unrhyw amser yng Nghasnewydd rydych chi’n gwybod … ‘cadwch hi’n ddiogel’.

Mae Ben wedi rhoi print o’r gwaith hwn yn raslon fel ein prif wobr yn ein raffl fawr (manylion ar y wefan). Gallwch brynu’ch Stone Cherub eich hun o ddolen gyswllt Ben ar Instagram.
