A blog by Jon Edgar comments on the work,

cast in bronze for permanent display in the city centre [and] remarkably wholly financed by public subscription … The sculpture evolved from the story of monks’ escape from Lindisfarne in 875AD through fear of Viking invasion. Undertaking an epic journey across Northumbria carrying the coffin of Saint Cuthbert, they eventually settled in Durham in 995AD; the Cathedral was built as a shrine to the saint. Jon Edgar
