Scrapyard sculptures

This chap will cost you a cool £22,000 if you'd like to put him in your garden!

I like the quizzical expression on this billy goat's face.

The annual summer sculpture exhibition is on at the moment in Paradise, the grassed area in the centre of Chichester Cathedral’s cloisters. My favourite sculptures this year are a series of animals made from scrap metal by the Aberdeenshire sculptor, Helen Denerley. They’re welded together from bits and pieces she finds lying around in scrapyards, farmyards, garages and gardens and she creates some wonderfully curvaceous and lifelike creatures from them. I was particularly taken with the crocodile and spent quite some time crawling around on the grass this afternoon trying to find the best angle, regardless of the peculiar looks I was getting from the other visitors!

MoMac Well done would like to see the colour version too though , I think the crocodile especially would look nice against agreen background.

danrav Helen, the B&W really suits these critters well! Ordinarily I am not a big fan of junk sculptures, but these are different! These are real and they have "animal" oozing from them. Will they rust or have they been coated to resist rust???

djnana I can only imagine how difficult it was to get that second shot so perfectly focused and exposed, yet capture all the details. Really excellent work, Helen.

Annbramwell Is that crocodile made out of motorcycle chains? He looks terribly realistic, enough to scare the life out of the neighbours... hmmmm... £22 000 it may just be worth the expense..!
