This is "Sanctuary" - just about quarter of a mile from where I am currently sitting here on North Uist. It forms part of the "Road End Sculptures" Series of artworks on the Islands - I was sitting on another of them eating my lunch today - that one takes the form of a wavy tiled bench, in beautiful muted colours to reflect the sea, sky, machair and moorland around it. I’m not generally the sort of person who has a favourite piece of art - but if I were, I rather think this might be it. Just imagine the surprise that would give the sort of person who would ask about such things, eh?!
