The sculpture, which has been unveiled in time for the Summer Solstice, has been specially positioned to sit on little known ley lines.

At the centre of the sculpture sits Skoda's new compact city car, the Citigo, which has led to the moniker 'Citihenge'. The installation took sculptor Tommy Gun and his team three months to build.
This mini Stonehenge is under no threat of being crushed by a dwarf, as it incorporates 18 scrap cars and stands at over five metres tall. Each henge is five metres wide and the commanding structure weighs 36 tonnes.
Gun, a self-taught artist who specialises in big sculptures often made from machine parts, has exhibited at Chelsea Flower Show and The Grand Designs Show, Olympia, and was commissioned to produce a sculpture for the Tour de France.
The installation is the latest in a series of cultural creative projects undertaken by Skoda, which has included giant cakes, a car in a cage and collaborations with musicians Anastacia and DJ Tiesto.
The beacon of economical motoring will remain at Potters Fields for two days before touring the UK, taking in the Goodwood Festival of Speed from 28th June - 1st July.
