Tribute to Benjamin Britten : Words from Britten's Peter Grimes
Tribute to Benjamin Britten : Words from Britten's Peter Grimes
This sculpture, created by local artist Maggie Hamblin, resides on the beach at Aldeburgh. Although it caused some consternation when erected it now sits quietly, pondering over the sea and is now visited quite frequently. I have actually cheated in as much as the image is "flipped" in order to have the poetry reasonably legible against the setting sun (west) which is actually behind the piece. In reality, one needs to be facing seaward (east) to read the words.
