Another from Gunwarf Quays, this sculpture is located in the shopping area, no idea why or come to that who it is meant to be, but I thought I would take a photo of him. Apologies no shadow images to upload, hope everyone is enjoying the glorious sunshine Smile

Thank you all so much for all your C&C's very much appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to look

Hugh

Not easy to control the exposure in bright light but nicely done here, Hugh.

I like the mood the sculpture conveys, but I like the way it is shot with its balance of highlight and shadow more.

An exceptionally thought evoking expression, wonderfully crafted by the sculptures hand. The swathe of light certainly enhances the boy like features, and thus in turn provides a rather comforting feel to the composition.

Firstly, this is very well captured, showing lots of sculpting detail, and the boat provides a perfect textured background to the boy's face.l It's the Jubilee Sculpture 2002, a bronze, 12' high.
Portsmouth City Council wanted a sculpture for installation in the new Gun Wharf development, representing the city's future and its last half-century.
The piece shows the prow of the Royal Yacht Britannia, with the future represented by a small boy seated at its base. the base itself evokes the round Tower, which guards the entrance to the Harbour.
"The past 50 years and the future have been commemorated in the jubilee statue unveiled by the Queen at Gunwharf Quays. Vivien Mallock's work was officially put on display at the shopping centre when the Queen visited on Thursday (written June 29th 2002). The bronze piece features the bow of the royal yacht Britannia, which used to be based in Portsmouth, with the figure of a boy sitting next to it. 'The ship represents the past 50 years and the boy is a symbol of the future', said Mrs. Matlock. The statue took her about 4 months to make, and she has several publicly displayed elsewhere.
