Zombies on the beach, England

 


A beach in Liverpool is home to dozens of stationary, zombie-like statues, all facing out to sea in various locations.
The sculpture consists of 100 cast iron figures which face out to sea, spread over a 2 mile (3.2 km) stretch of the beach. Each figure is 189 cm tall (nearly 6 feet 2½ inches) and weighs around 650 kg (over 1400 lb).

 


Another Place is a piece of modern sculpture by Antony Gormley.In common with most of Gormley’s work, the figures are cast replicas of the artist’s own body. As the tides ebb and flow, the figures are revealed and submerged by the sea.
