This lady was normally naked but as Tallinn prepares for Christmas we found her draped in golden light – still a bit creepy though….
A statue to honour those who died in the steel industry in Corby, Northamptonshire, England, over the years. Corby has suffered financial hardship because of the loss of most of the industry and, whilst regeneration is occurring, it is mainly the leisure industry which is creating jobs now. I feel this statue also honours the dying industry itself.
Have to check my notes re creator of this wonderful work but I do remember it is dedicated to Crick and Watson, the two scientists recognised as discovering DNA. I think this is one of the most beautiful works I have seen – powerful but graceful.
