Yorkshire Sculpture Park - Jaume Plensa


Being the featured artist right now at the sculpture park, Jaume Plensa not only has several large-scale outside installations but he also has pieces in the 5 indoor galleries. These alabaster heads stand about 5 to 6 ft tall and are fabulous in real life - imagine walking into this darkened room and discovering these glowing wonders and being able to walk among them!

Five feet! - wow! Hard to see that in the pic without a reference, but you're right, I'd like to walk in among them!

Wonderful works and nice shot, thank you for sharing!

They are almost mystical. If you or a buddy were standing in the room, that would have provided the scale. I like the elongation. Must have been a great sight.

Wow, I believe most of them are bigger than me...
The way you described the walk in the darkened room was very cool too! ;-)

Wow, love the alabaster, as well as the fact that she left so much unfinished stone. As you said, it must have been incredible to walk into the room, they are huge and must have had an amazing impact.

HUGE! I'm glad you said how tall they are because I couldn't tell from the photo.
