Nice piece of sculpture Amelia, the church is charming! Best wishes, Fai
i have to say that I think this sculpture spoils the view of the Norwegian Church Fai. I don't know when it was erected. The Norwegian Church has undergone a complete refurbishment and looks really lovely, but of course it is no longer a consecrated church.
Friendly greetings, Amelia
Mmmmm, from this angle Scott does block the view of the church Bonnie wee Lass (it also seems he is about to block something else from his 'rather unusual pose' !
I must say the whole series is wonderful and fresh, shame the place is so empty of people!
Attractive statue! Cheers, Christian
I had to pick my moments Bonnie Lad - all the road racers were almost finished, and folks were starting to think about lunch.
I have to confess that I don't really understand this sculpture, but if you look carefully you should just see Adrian purposefully striding towards the coffee shop in the Church, carrying a fleece over his shoulder ;)
I'm pleased that you like it dear Christian - I'm not sure about it. It commemorates the centenary anniversary of the “Age of Antarctic Discovery”, and the sculptor was inspired by Gaudi.
It does look a bit 'icy'.
Nice strong photography dear Amelia like Best wishes, Peter
My friend lived for a time in Cardiff. Beautiful place. Best regards! L & F
Dear Peter, thank you. I have to say that it isn't my favourite work of art, yet it represents the icy conditions at Antarctica that ultimately caused the deaths of Captain Scott and his colleagues in their bid to plant the British flag at the south pole. He was, unsurprisingly really, pipped to the post by a Norwegian group led by Amundsen.
Warm wishes, Amelia
