Firstly, a big thankyou to Helen (helenlinda) for her UA on my Stacked Cubes.
Also, thankyou for your comments, it was interesting to hear that they confused other people as well.
This is part of a sculpture at the Henry Cort Sculpture Park in Fareham Centre, the pedestrianised area of West Street. The "puddled" wrought iron sculptures are themed on Farehamís market town history and the exhibition is the largest of its type in Britain, providing a unique and interesting thoroughfare.
The project commemorated the inventor of the "puddling" process for wrought iron and focused on combining the materials and techniques available prior to his death in 1800 with contemporary design.
I chose to concentrate on the shopping bags, mainly because I like to pick out detail, but also because the head was not only just an open hole, but there was no way to photograph the whole sculpture without including pedestrians. I only wanted pavement as my background. There was very little colour in the image so I chose to go with black and white.
V1 is a crop of V2.
V3 is the original colour version.
If anyone's interested in the puddling technique, here is an explanation.
