Deleted sentence[edit]

I have deleted the sentence "This also links with the towns motto, 'Ex Terra Lucem', which means 'out of the ground light'." because it was added to a cited paragraph, but was itself uncited, making nonsense of the citation. If a reference for the edit can be provided, please add it separately, with a citation. Peter I. Vardy (talk) 18:56, 11 May 2009 (UTC)

Not very wide[edit]

This statue seems like it was squashed. I saved the picture and widened it to double the original, and it still has not "normally wide" head proportions. Worth mentioning? 85.217.42.69 (talk) 11:11, 5 September 2011 (UTC)

Lighting[edit]

The article said "In 2011 Dream received funding from art and culture companies to have Dream lit up and to have a spotlight shining from the top of the head." However, I can find no reference to this (though I would be pleased to be proved wrong), so I have removed the sentence. Isidore (talk) 18:32, 17 March 2012 (UTC)


In June 2011, the Dream statue was briefly illuminated at night when 12 lights were installed around its circular base. These were vandalised and destroyed within just a few days. Guardian blog article here: http://www.theguardian.com/uk/the-northerner/2011/jul/19/public-art-vandalised-st-helens

According to the St.Helens Reporter, there were also attempts to steal the underground cables: http://www.sthelensreporter.co.uk/news/local/dream-lighting-project-hit-by-vandals-1-4964407 ...althought there are a couple of errors in this article, one of them being "former Bold colliery miners", which should be "former Sutton Manor colliery miners". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 46.64.114.19 (talk) 12:21, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
