Maryís Golden Shell

By sherlob    

I know this is a common location, but it is one I have never visited before. For those who donít know it, this shell can be found on Cleveleysís beach. The art instillation is by Stephen Broadbent, and is based upon a childrenís story wherein the Mary saves her village using a golden shell.

Enjoy your Sunday.

Love the pool of water at the base of the shell, it looks like molten metal.
