The work was created for 'The Sparks will Fly', Essex Olympic celebrations, 2012. Twenty artworks were commissioned by Essex County Council for the 20 Essex towns, to be created by a local artist from each town, with the stipulation that the artworks were to be contained within a perspex sphere, a bead, provided by the council. This artwork celebrates Harlow's title of 'Sculpture Town' and contains ten miniature clay replicas of the public's favourite sculptures, chosen through a public poll set up in libraries and the Civic Centre.
