A few weeks ago we visited Steve’s parents in the North West of England. In Sefton, not far from where they live, is this installation by Antony Gormley, which stretches out to sea and along the beach for three kilometres. The one hundred representations of the artist all face the horizon, some sinking in the sand and water. It is three years since it was first installed and most of the statues are taking on a patina of barnacles and moss. On a cold, grey day it was beautiful and rather melancholy. But the children had a great time, as children will, by dressing up the sculptures and pretending to be statues themselves. If you are ever in the area (it’s not far from Liverpool), it is well worth a visit.
