I just realised that I never posted my pictures from my visit to YSP a few weeks ago.

Antony Gormley: One & Other (2000)


Sol LeWitt: 123454321 (1993)


David Nash: Seventy One Steps (2010)


After walking through the woods and finding an upside down tree and a termite mound (we don't have termite mounds in the UK as far as I know!) which we gather were sculptures we started laughing that everything we saw was a sculpture - the geese (no), a highland cow (no), a hazel woven hedge (yes), a row of twigs on the floor in the woods (yes) - see photo below!

Hemali Bhuta: speed breakers (2012) again not my photo but to be honest I wasn't sure if this was sculpture or nature till I got home and looked it up!

So - stacked bonfire twigs (yes), a group of cattle feeders (yes) stepping stones (no - well I'm guessing not!)


After the walk through the wooded area we came across the Henry Moore Sculptures which I had really been looking forward to and the main reason I went to YSP!

Henry Moore: Two Reclining Figures:Points (1969-1970)


Henry Moore: Reclining Figure: Arched Leg (1969 - 1970)


Henry Moore: Two Large Forms (1966 - 1969)
- It looks like sex to me!!


Henry Moore: Large Totem Head (1968)


Henry Moore: Draped Seated Woman (1957)


I have only been once before to the YSP (in 1995) and I seemed to remember there being a lot more Henry Moore Sculptures but when I looked it up there was a 6 month Henry Moore exhibition at YSP which may well have been the reason I went!!!

Anyway it was a lovely day, the sun shone and I had a lovely coffee in the new visitors centre. Very good value day out as it only cost me the fare there and back and the park was free!
