photoblog image Penelope

Penelope


In Wolstoneholme Square, Liverpool, stands a unique piece of artwork by the sculptor Jorge Pardo. Called Penelope after the wife of Ulysses, who like all good Greeks had gone off to fight in the Trojan War leaving his good lady behind to await his return.

Produced as part of the Liverpool 2002 Biennial, Penelope is located in the old ropeworks area and the stalks are supposed to represent the ropes that were part of this area during the age of sail.

It must be quite big Les as I note small trees growing within the area of it.
Les Auld: It is Brian, takes the full area of the centre of the square, thanks for the comment.
Well captured Les/
Les Auld: Thanks Ron, appreciate the comment.
The direction arrow seems like an ironc comment and makes the shot for me. I'm less sure about the crane. Although it sits comfortably enough in that gap, it's a bit of a distraction.
Les Auld: I did think about cloning the crane out, and then thought not, thanks for the comment Ian.

I really do find it incredibly difficult to work out how on earth this relates to the Ulysses Penelope *shrug*

Looks fun though
Les Auld: I can't work it out either Ellie, but then that's art for you. Thanks for the comment.
