Watch Dan introduce his installation

In addition to the many historic objects in the major exhibition Titanic Stories, the National Maritime Museum Cornwall commissioned a visually-stunning representation of the iceberg suspended over the lifeboat by Cornwall based Dan Arnold. The sculpture is formed from 2208 monkey’s fist knots, each hand made by members of the local community, each representing a survivor or victim of the tragedy.
