This steel sculpture stands in one of the smaller parking areas for Newborough Warren, by Llyn Rhos-ddu at Pen-lon. The explanatory plaque says: "Marram Mat Makers Association 1913 - This sculpture depicts the 'gafrod' of marram grass, harvested and drying in the sun. Newborough residents used to harvest the grass every two years and leave it to dry from its green colour to a golden yellow. 'Gafrod' was a local term for the bundles of marram standing on end, gathered and tied at the top with a plaited cord of marram".
