Sound 11

By pamelajean
This mysterious life-size statue of a man contemplating the water held in his hands is the work of the celebrated British sculptor Sir Antony Gormley (there is a tube mechanism through his body, so as the water rises it fills his cupped hands). At times he stands up to his knees in water.

ďSound IIĒ is fashioned from lead out of a plaster cast of the artistís own body, and has stood in the Crypt below Winchester Cathedral since the late 1980s.

Iíve previously uploaded a landscape format of this, so here is a portrait format (and a different image).

Many thanks for your interest in my flower picture.

Pamela.

He needs the water to work. I've only seen him with a wet floor...

A lovely image, Pamela, with everything going for it. The great surroundings, along with the reflections, super colours, and the overall presentation. We have six of statues scattered throughout Edinburgh. I am going to post one of them, as my next entry.
