A beautifully sunny day beckoned us out so off we went to Tremenheere Sculpture Park where the first beautiful thing we saw on parking was the lovely red damselfly above.
We always enjoy stomping around the gardens, the planting is glorious and the sculpture always intriguing.
St Michael’s Mount
New exhibit – don’t know its name
We love visiting the James Turrell piece where we like to sit quietly and watch the sky and the clouds.
Tewlwolow Kernow is “An underground elliptical domed chamber which James Turrell has designed as a space from which to view the sky, especially at twilight.” Tewlwolow means half-light, i.e. twilight.
‘Michael’ by Reinhard Pontius
An Angel’s Journey – Since 2020, this wooden sculpture by #ReinhardPontius (@atelier_fuer_bildhauerei) has been making its way across Europe as a messenger of peace and reconciliation. Following visits to Leipzig, Bruges, Coventry, last month Michael arrived at #Tremenheere, where it is sited in view of St Michael’s Mount until mid October, before heading to its next destination. It is hoped that Michael will eventually travel to Kiev, Ukraine
Speaking about the work Reinhard Pontius says:
“We know about the Archangel Michael as a fighter and as the patron Saint in wars and freedom fights. With my Sculpture I would like to invite a different understanding: Michael – the angel of peace. I have deliberately dispersed with the familiar attributes of spear, flaming sword and scales in order to allow a new, free approach to this angel. The Archangel Michael stands for a spiritual power that is universal and at the same time very personal and that wants to support us to live courageously and peacefully.”
That brilliant day just got even better with a visit to The Hall for Cornwall to see “Message in a Bottle.” which I’ll tell you more about tomorrow.
