Sound II, Anthony Gormley

Sound II, Anthony Gormley.

Awe-inspiring art, in the Cathedral crypt in Winchester. Fashioned from lead out of plaster cast of the artist's own body, the sculpture of a man contemplating the water held in his cupped hands, could not have found a more evocative home than this 9th century crypt.

The crypt floods frequently and when the sculpture's feet are covered in water the drama of the installation intensifies.
