The Drover (Welsh: ‘Y Porthmon) sculpture by Tony Woodman.  Installed in St Catherine’s Walk, Carmarthen town in 2010.

Alex Fox notes in his blog :

 “Helen and Tony Woodman are carers with West Wales Adult Placement (Shared Lives) Scheme. Thanks to the work of the Scheme and funding from the council, the people who visit Helen and Tony’s home in the peaceful Cych Valley, Pembrokeshire have the opportunity to create works of art that are sited in prominent positions around Carmarthenshire. These include The Boars marking the gateway into Ammanford, The Drover Sculptures in a busy shopping area in Carmarthen and two Dragons, one welcoming visitors to Carmarthen and the other guarding the gateway to Newcastle Emlyn Castle, which legend says was the place the last dragon of Wales was slain. “
