Sleeping Giants.

By newy17
iverpool Giants,Sea Odyssey Titanic event ends.

The event was inspired by a letter written by a young girl to her father who worked as a steward on the Titanic, which was registered in Liverpool.

William McMurray did not survive the sinking and never saw the letter from his 10-year-old daughter May, which arrived after the ship had sailed.

Sea Odyssey shows the girl, called Little Girl Giant, walking around Liverpool on a quest to learn news of her father from her uncle who has dived to the wreck of the ship.

The giant marionettes are made from poplar, lime wood and steel.

Their eyes are made from street lights and their hair from horse hair.

The dog puppet, called Xolo, is made from steel and papier mache.

Enjoy your weekend folk Wink

A touching one here Ian,and not so much disturbing for me.
But the event was certainly disturbing with the distinction made
between the ''haves and have nots '' !!

A really striking image and even more interesting when you read the write-up you've given - I love the way you've composed this and the subtle vignetting around the figures focusses attention on the beautifully.
