Swan Sculpture
Swan Sculpture
The idea of this piece of artwork is that it is a recognisable swan from a distance, and then on closer inspection the viewer realises it is dead. It is positioned facing the river where swans breed every year and many locals "watch anxiously" to see how the cygnets will fare each year. According to the board beside it, the artist wants to show how easily humans become emotionally involved with animals.
