Antony Gormley's Another Place_002

Another Place consists of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometers of the foreshore at Crosby, stretching almost one kilometre out to sea. Contractors spent three weeks lifting the figures into place and driving them into the beach on the-metre-high foundation piles. The Another Place figures - each one weighing 650 kilos - are made from casts of the artist's own body and are shown at different stages of rising out of the sand, all of them looking out to sea, staring at the horizon in silent expectation. All of the figures are submerged at high tide.

Will visit this site again armed with a pair of wellies!
