Spirit of South Shields

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 9 February 2014 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Irene Brown's 1998 sculpture "Spirit of South Shields" overlooks the River Tyne, and appears to wave at the seagulls and passing ships :-)
Captured a few days ago on my short riverside walk.

Excellent composition and superb statue, do you have informations on the fact that a woman with a peculiar short body (peculiar for the statues) has been chosen ?

@Basile Pesso: I wish I knew Basile, she is quite short in stature :-)
