Millennium Sculpture, Robin Hood's Bay
Millennium Sculpture, Robin Hood's Bay
Mystery seems to surround the sculpture erected in 2000 at the top of the bank in Robin Hood's Bay - both as to the identity of the sculptor, and to what the sculpture is all about. Some people have nicknamed it the "Kraken", a legendary sea monster of giant size that is said to dwell off the coasts of Norway and Greenland. My own interpretation is that it is a globe surmounted by a head or possibly a crown, the whole resting on the back of a basking shark which is also a cellar.
