New Header Photo: Heads

Jaume Plensa Alabaster heads

For the first time in about six months I’ve decided to change the header image on the site. The old one was from a photo I took of some ice cubes, this one is from an exhibit at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

The photo is from an exhibit by Jaume Plensa, and is part of a much larger exhibit, both in the galleries, and outside with even more sculptures in the park itself.  It shows a collection of eleven alabaster heads, subtly lit. The effect is somewhat unearthly, and face on they look much deeper than their profile suggests, and the alabaster gives them an almost organic appearance under the light.
