    Ooh, she could do with losing a few inches round the thighs, lol!

    I like that sort of sculpture that plays around with normal shapes and dimensions. It makes you look at things quite differently. Jenny doesn’t like it though, she finds that kind of distortion of the normal rather creepy.

    Nick – Funny, I saw the female figure emerging from the kernel and never thought of it as thighs. Trust a man to do so.

    I think sculpture adds so much to a garden. I ‘get’ the impression that Ana Duncan was conveying and that’s probably because I am a woman. Is she emerging from a kernel ( I do think you are right, Grannymar) or the womb? I guess you can make your own interpretation.
