Still Life was Watson's first major public commission. It took him a year to complete. The weight of the finished piece caused some problems at its installation; the sculpture, dangling from slings on a gantry, had to be wheeled manually to the prepared plinth in West Square. It was then settled onto mounds of ice so that the slings could be withdrawn as the ice melted.
