Eduardo Paolozzi was born in Edinburgh in 1924, and his images are drawn from an interest in post-war science, technology and the mass media. Vulcan by Eduardo Paolozzi is over 7 metres tall and was commissioned by Parabola Estates for their award winning Central Square
building. The sculpture appears to be of a humanoid machine, a monument to the modern age. Vulcan was the Roman god of fire and patron of craftsmanship and is shown with a
hammer as the tool of his trade.
