Reading Between the Lines


Ashton's newest sculpture appeared this week outside the Central Library in Old Street. The skeletal scuplture appears to be of a gentleman reading a book or a newspaper, with with briefcase at his side. He would need to read between the lines as the pages don't have a lot of substance!

I couldn't find anyone in the library who knew who the artist is but someone might be letting me know if they find out!

  2. I do visit and I do comment and I was here. I did look at your picture(s) and I did read what you wrote about them. I could say how great you are and how beautiful your work is but alas I would soon run out of things to say on the next blog I visited, so I just left this to prove I stopped and said a few words on Sunday. It is different.

    My Rheumatoid Arthritis hurts so I am using the same message for all.

  3. Have you tried "Enbrel"
    Works wonders for me.
    It eliminates the symptoms!

  4. Hmmmm.... it doesn't exactly go with the lovely Victorian Gothic architecture does it?? It might have looked better in another location, and yes I know it is a man reading outside a library!! but.....

    Assheton,
    Perhaps Martin will venture down to Henry Square where to commemorate the 46 killed on and around William Street in the 1917 TNT explosion. It is ten stainless steel spikes in a fan arrangement.

  6. Perhaps Martin already has! See 24th June's entry!

  7. One would have thought the people at the library would have the information.

    Talking of statues - what is that one near Trafalger Square? - saw it from 219 bus the other day and I don't remember seeing it before, although it looks an old one.

  8. hyde dp,
    It's the statue of Hugh Mason moved from Henry Sq in the mid 1990's, and originally erected in Chester Sq in 1887, 1 yr after his death. Made of bronze and cast in Paris in 1886. If you 'Google' his name you'll find his history.
