Hello again all you arty fans. I'm glad to see you are back for some more pics. I was walking through the lovely Sculpture Park and in the distance I saw what looked like a cartoon film show in the distance. Intrigued I had to have a closer look. People were walking very briskly across the grass, oh hang on, they are not real people. There was a large screen between the trees with figures marching across in both directions. Made me smile, I like the way it is in contrast to the surroundings. Took me about ten shots to get some pics, they walk so quickly.
Two figures crossing each other going in the opposite direction.
This is a very large installation, Ai Wei Wei's Circle of Animals. Cast in bronze and standing three metres high. Twelve bronze heads representing the traditional Chinese Zodiac. There is more information about them on the YSP web site. The park setting is the ideal place to appreciate their uniqueness.
As well as the sculptures, the gardens are also nice to stroll through. The perfume from these yellow flowers was divine, I had to linger for a few minutes.
A walk back through the woods, passing Andy Goldsworthy's Hanging Trees which I've seen before, there are some pictures of it on a previous post. Back over the Cascade Bridge.
Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
