NZ3567 : "Spirit of South Shields"

taken 13 days ago, near to North Shields, North Tyneside, Great Britain

"Spirit of South Shields"
"Spirit of South Shields"
This scantily clad maiden apparently symbolises the spirit of South Shields. This sculpture by Irene Brown was installed in 2000 on the banks of the River Tyne at the entrance to Market Dock.

She harbours a ship safely in one arm whilst raising her other arm in greeting. The Spirit is seen as the protector - guiding the ship through the seas safely. She stands strong and optimistic, unafraid and invigorated by the winds of change. She is the prow, the figurehead for South Shields' future.

New apartment blocks on Long Row can be seen beyond the dock entrance.
