As one approaches it, [Gormley] explains: “The nature of the object changes. You can see it as a human form in the distance. It becomes more abstract the closer you get to it. And finally it becomes a chaotic frame through which you can look at the sky.” I don't like the sculpture but I like your shot of it! Best wishes Paul.

With a few modifications a piece of art it could have been if the tree-like sculpture did not have the tips of the branches linked up by the members delineating the outer circumference. Now, it represents no more than an indulgent waste of money of a man relieving himself in the middle of nowhere. A structure that will not only be costly to maintain, but also not very durable.
