10 times the height of his rusted iron sculptures comprising 'The broken Column' in Stavanger. The figures make one realise the size of the sculpture. I would only come up up to the ankle of The Angel. ;-)
HFF and a good weekend, Gudrun

Diese riesige Skulptur erinnert mich an die ägyptische Göttin Isis. Ja, durch die Menschlein zu ihren Füßen kann man die Monumentalität erkennen, Gudrun. Es muss sehr eindruckvoll sein, sie aus der Ferne zu sehen.

This is a cracking image Gudrun.........I've never seen this sculpture in real life, but this is one of the best perspectives I've seen it from in photos. I love the people in shot too........they really bring home just how big the Angel is..!! My favourite fence pic of the week :)

For dramatic impact I prefer the B/W version.............but the colour version has glorious ligfht!

HFF..............and have a splendid weekend.

Thanks very much, Keith! I'm glad our bus driver insisted on this detour, it was fantastic to see it closer than just from the motorway. The weather wasn't good, that's why I went for bw, the colour version has had a sepia tint added.
