WPC: Dialogue – Sculpture – Two Sides

The following two images depict the detail to be seen in the faces of two characters of a single piece of sculpture. The facial expressions tell of such a dialogue between them. A further image below of a slightly wider shots helps to set the overall context of the work and the interplay between both parties.

Does anybody know who these characters are and what is the story behind the piece?

WPC: Dialogue – Pisa – Real & Reflected

This reflected image of Pisa was taken looking into the headlight of a parked Ambulance. On the other side of the coin as it were is an image of the leaning tower, taken looking directly at it. Reflected images are often far more interesting that the “real world”.
