A giant rusted crown.

The sculpture symbolises a giant rusted crown.
An iron ring sculpture designed for Flint Castle has been described as "insulting" to Wales by critics who say it represents the "subjugation" of the country.
The sculpture, in the form of a giant rusted crown, symbolises the relationship between the medieval monarchies of Europe and the castles they built, say the architects behind the idea.
The winning design was selected by a panel following a nation-wide competition, and the architects said it demonstrated "the unstable nature of the crown".
Flint Castle was one of the first to be built in Wales by Edward I, whose reign involved a series of military campaigns in Wales.
