Public art sculpture created by Graham Ibbeson in 1991.

The bronze sculpture of a woman holding apart two squabbling children set on a concrete pedestal rests outside Middlesbrough's law courts.

The figure of the woman was modelled from the artist's wife, Carol, who is shown, he has said, 'as completely impartial in her off-springs' quarrels'.

The two squabbling children are based on Ibbeson's memories of himself and his sister when young.
