The Dark Side of Sculpture (images may be disturbing)

Yesterday I had another Birthmonth day out, to a sculpture garden in North Devon. More about to follow about that, but for now I wanted to show you these few sculptures we found gathered in a small area. The first was a real double take,

Very dark don’t you think? especially the suicide bomber, a shocking interpretation of life and death.

  1. Certainly thought provoking. You couldn’t come away from a visit there without being moved to revulsion at man’s incredible stupidity. I love the wire fencing on the first one. Thanks for showing us these.

    The empty shoes and boots are the most intriguing to me.

  3. Most disturbing. I don’t think I like these sculptures. // You couldn’t come away from a visit there without being moved to revulsion at man’s incredible stupidity. //
    And I still don’t get the face.

  4. Wow! These sculptures are true to human nature for sure Gilly. Thanks for sharing this link and for these stunning photos. My favourite is still the one under the ground. 😆 The one with the high heels and boots made me think of Puss in Boots. hahahaha!

I would love to hear from you . . .
