photoblog image The Crusader

The Crusader

 

As you enter the Imperial War Museum North at Salford Quays you come face to face with this large artwork entitled The Crusader. Created by contemporary artist Gerry Judah, it represents his views on modern day wars but also resonates with the history of world conflict, showing how war has and continues, to shape lives.

 

Whatever it meant to represent, it is quite a powerful piece of Sculpture.

A very powerful image Les
Les Auld: It is quite a powerful artwork Chris, thanks for the comment.
Very different and impressive Les, what is it made of and how large is it ?
Les Auld: I think it is about twelve foot long but I have no idea what it is made off Martin, thanks for the comment.

Impressive Les - I too wondered about the scale - large I am guessing?
Les Auld: Large indeed Mike, the top is about fifteen feet off the ground. Thanks for the comment.
It is a very good sculpture Les, but I nearly always fail to see the actual concept of some of these things, I just like it or I don't.
Les Auld: The same for me, I do find it difficult to relate to the descriptions that are given for these things. Thanks for the comment.
A fascinating image Les..I like it!
Les Auld: There is something about it Ron, thanks for the comment.

I've never heard of this before and it's something that I would no have associated with the War Nuseum. Looks like something some Star Wars!
Les Auld: There is an out of this world feel to it Alan, thanks for the comment.
