Figures in a park

We installed the three bronze figures on Sunday in the blazing heat at Jing’an International Sculpture Park in Shanghai. You could have cooked an egg on the bronze. As it turned out we didn’t have to go so early. It just so happened my sister was visiting me that day, very exciting! There were plenty of men to move the pieces onto the big rock steps at the park. It was a humbling feeling to leave my pieces alone in the middle of Shanghai as we headed back to the workshop. They look great there.

    Fantastic Joy. The placement is really good and I hope you’ll take more pictures of them over time.

      Thanks Richard! I’ve got loads of pictures and will send more. This is a new park and I think as the plantings grow up and fill in it will be an even more wonderful space.
