Cumbria - The Art Gallery

Andy Goldsworthy - Sheepfolds is a collection of ephemeral art dotted around Cumbria.

I particularly like this one - is it the screaming mouths of lost souls; or the burrows of a long-lost Lakeland creature? The almost missable qualities of this also appeal: snaking through the reeds like the flightpath of a damsel fly, and the fiery colours of this contrast wonderfully with the muted tones of its surroundings.

I really like those!

I like the fact that some of them give the appearance of being natural phenomena. Would be cool to come across them while out walking, not having any clue about what they were, or how they got there.

They're brilliant! A bit like crop circles, but more individual.

Never thought of that .. good comparison.

I like the idea of aliens travelling zillions of miles across the galaxy to paint stripes on a bit of stone on a remote mountainside. :)
