Easter Sundays morning reflections ~ Empowerment sculpture ~ Lincoln

Easter Sundays morning reflections ~ Empowerment sculpture ~  Lincoln
Empowerment is a public sculpture in the centre of the city of Lincoln in England.

Designed by the artist Stephen Broadbent, sponsored by Alstom Power (now Siemens), and completed in 2002, the sculpture spans the River Witham in Lincoln's City Square. It takes the form of two aluminium-and-steel human figures reaching to each other across the water. The design is intended to echo the shape of turbine blades, in recognition of Lincoln's industrial heritage.

At 16 metres tall, Empowerment is the largest sculpture in Lincolnshire.Increasingly, it is used alongside more traditional images of Lincoln — the cathedral and castle — as a recognisable 'tourist emblem' of the city (similar to the adoption of the Angel of the North as a symbol of North East England).
