Vulcan Sir Eduardo Paolozzi
(2000) bronze

Eduardo Paolozzi was born in Edinburgh in 1924, and his images are drawn from an interest in post-war science, technology and the mass media. Vulcan by Eduardo Paolozzi is over 7 metres tall and was commissioned by Parabola Estates for their award winning Central Square
building. The sculpture appears to be of a humanoid machine, a monument to the modern age. Vulcan was the Roman god of fire and patron of craftsmanship and is shown with a
hammer as the tool of his trade.

Really excellent. I've tried to get a decent picture of that foot, and totally failed. The light is critical. Very well judged and composed.

Intriguing sculpture. I think v2 is my choice, though. It show the strength of it's namesake.

I like No 2 here.It puts me in mind of all these statues that littered Eastern Europe at the height of Communism.Not built for their aesthetic qualities,but bold graphic lines to get the message across !!!
Good close ups here and nicely lit too.
Mick.

Agree with this. Wrt v1, I like it a lot also, it's almost an abstract the way it is photographed. Really enjoy seeing this in mono.
