Drover sculpture by Tony Woodman, Carmarthen

The Drover (Welsh: ‘Y Porthmon) sculpture by Tony Woodman.  Installed in St Catherine’s Walk, Carmarthen town in 2010.

Alex Fox notes in his blog :

 “Helen and Tony Woodman are carers with West Wales Adult Placement (Shared Lives) Scheme. Thanks to the work of the Scheme and funding from the council, the people who visit Helen and Tony’s home in the peaceful Cych Valley, Pembrokeshire have the opportunity to create works of art that are sited in prominent positions around Carmarthenshire. These include The Boars marking the gateway into Ammanford, The Drover Sculptures in a busy shopping area in Carmarthen and two Dragons, one welcoming visitors to Carmarthen and the other guarding the gateway to Newcastle Emlyn Castle, which legend says was the place the last dragon of Wales was slain. “

Tango in Liverpool

Tango (1984) the iconic sculpture by Allen Jones.    On Peter’s Lane.

More background on the sculpture here :  ”

Tango is the first public sculpture by British artist Allen Jones and was commissioned for the Liverpool Garden Festival in 1984 . It  was moved to Concert Square and stood there for a number of years until the Square was reconfigured.

Now more than 30 years after  making its first appearance in the city, Tango has returned to Liverpool and given a temporary spot at Peter’s Square at Liverpool ONE as a reminder of the city’s growth and vibrancy.

Artist Allen Jones is a pioneer of British Pop Art and a contemporary of Sir Peter Blake, the artist who created The Beatles Sgt Pepper’s cover and created the designs for the Mersey Ferry dazzle ship. Jones established his international reputation in the early 1960s as a painter, printmaker and sculptor and has created designs for the stage, TV and film. A major early work by Jones is on display at the Walker Art Gallery.
