Art in the Streets

When I visited San Gimignano back in 2012 there was an exhibit of Antony Gormley's sculptures in town and spilling out into the streets were many of his standing man sculptures.  I had seen many photos of these sculptures in a variety of places like water and mountains but, I had never seen one in person.

They were located in the streets in places where you could walk right up to them.

When I got to the Piazza Duomo, I turned to take a photo of those famous towers and I spotted another statue atop the tallest tower.

I wanted to yell "don't jump" but, I controlled the urge.

This poor fellow is stuck right where he is standing. I wonder if he's still there.

I did enjoy seeing this collection of sculptures!

The one looking down from the building is quite scary and effective. Very interesting sculptures.

Now I have to google the artist to find out more about him! said...

The colors are quite striking and a bold contrast to the stone of San GImignano.

Very nicely erected.

My goodness. How interesting. I recently saw a permanent exhibition of his near Liverpool in northwestern England of 100+ statues on Crosby Beach.
