Close to Temenos at Middlehaven in Middlesbrough, hidden in the car park behind some modern offices overlooking the basin is a piece of sculpture in bronze by Benedict Carpenter. It is called "40,000 years of Modern Art" which is in itself a creative and provocative title.

This is a detail showing the textured surface of the bronze, curves, light and shade... The full work is shown in the second image.

Middlesbrough does commission some interesting (or perhaps strange) works...

To me, a very strange sculpture, but no doubt many people like it! Well captured, wonderful curves and lines, V.1 gets the vote. Carol

I like your capture in v1 - I like how the light falls on the textured surface.

If I had seen V2 first I would have walked by. Glad to see you stop and had a look round to capture V1.Amazing what a different angle can achieve. Well Done. Tony.

I definitely like your close up much better than the entire piece....
V1 is a work of art in itself.
