Full Fathom Five

By urbanbuzz  
Sculpture 'Full Fathom Five' by Michael Dan Archer on a raised earthwork at the entrance to Portishead Marina on the River Severn

One of the largest sculptures recently installed in the UK, the Seafarerís Sculpture has been created by artist Michael Dan Archer. It consists of a forest of granite columns running across a large earthwork by the sea in the new Port Marine development in Portishead near Bristol.

The 108 granite columns vary in height from 1m to 3m and are arranged in serpentine aisles which the spectator can walk through to the crest of the mound where a stone has been set to sit on and contemplate the sea. From land or sea, the view reveals that the columns form the profile of a wave.
