The monument is quite captivating though, reminding me of Fingal's Cave. Other visitors can make it hard to photograph so try to visit when it may be quieter

An amazing piece of public art. I loved both the bas relief head and the pipes. The only draw back was the number of visitors. They kept getting in my pictures! Well worth seeing.

That is the way I would describe this unusual art setting. It utilises plenty of steel but does not appear to tell a coherent story.

This was just one stop on our tour. The story of the artist is sort of sad. Her original "tube" monument was not well received, so she added the "faces" part. If you are on a tour and this is a 10 minute stop, then...More
