Erik Nitsche: Three Legs of Man Sculpture
Artist: Erik Nitsche
On the pastoral southeastern shore of the Isle of Man lies one of the Isle's main ports of entry, the modern Ronaldsway Airport. Set amid pastures reminiscent of the English Lake District, Ronaldsway welcomes thousands of tourists to the Isle. Proud of their Manx heritage, the Isle's citizens felt some unique symbol of their heritage should welcome visitors to Man especially during the Isle's Millennium Year which took place in 1979. After holding a design competition, artist Bryan Kneale was commissioned to complete his winning entry, a free-standing sculpture entitled Three Legs of Man, which now stands just outside the airport. The sculpture depicts the traditional emblem of the Isle of Man which symbolizes the Manx spirit of independence and determination.
