  • Black and white limestone tiny tiles form a dizzying pattern over 8712m sq - The Wide Ocean of Rossio Square, Lisbon. The original pavement was built in 1848 and took 323 days, it was replaced in 2003. Pattern in public spaces is omnipresent in Lisbon, from the floor to the walls, creating a rhythmic vibrant energy and a rich tapestry of design in the city #pattern #tile #energy #lisbon #food #portugal #decorative #mosaic #blackandwhite #rossiosquare #limestone #wideocean #rhythm #opticalillusion
  • It’s a very special moment discovering Antony Gormley’s quiet figures - like they have been patiently waiting for you. Sound II has been silently standing in the crypt of Winchester Cathedral for over 30 years. The crypt floods during heavy rain and the cupped hands of the piece can be found holding water. The sculpture is lead, made from a cast of the artist’s own body #antonygormley #sculpture #winchester #lead #crypt
  • Barbara Hepworth, 1903-1975 - Wave 1943-44.
Hepworth and her partner Ben Nicholson moved to St. Ives, Cornwall, in 1939. The piece was inspired by the sea and landscape of Cornwall - Hepworth commented “ I had a studio workroom looking straight towards the horizon of the sea, enfolded by the arms of the land to the left and right.  The piece encapsulates the energy and movement of the sea #powerful #tension #shape #britishsculpture #sculpture #barbarahepworth #edinburghnationalmuseum #wood #paint #string #scottishnationalgalleryofmodernart
