More Sculpture


The display of sculptures on the green in Salisbury’s Cathedral Close is becoming an annual event. You may remember last year, the sculptures had me scratching my head, and wondering what they were about.

This year, it’s the turn of Sophie Ryder to display her work and, although it’s still abstract, it’s a lot easier to interpret them. The display is called ‘Relationships’ … to quote from the leaflet, a ‘ … blend of human and animal forms … to discuss a complex range of human emotions …’

However, you are, of course, free to interpret them as you will.

There is, however, a bit of a tale about the archway of joined hands. Originally, it stood over the footpath, the intention being that visitors should walk under the arch. It had to be moved onto the grass (although people can still, if they wish, walk under it) … because people kept bumping into it while phoning or texting on the move.

You really couldn’t make it up!
