Newton

This is “Newton” the sculpture by Eduardo Paolozzi, based on the print by William Blake illustrating how Newton's equations changed the view of the world from one dominated by dogma and superstition to one determined by mathematical laws.

      great angle and perspective, gives the impression he holds the entire earth between those points of his compasses. great man... millions saw the apple falling, but he was the only to ask why :-)

      Great picture, I like the sculpture - I'm glad it's not one of those boring statues - standing with a hand in the hip and looking "somewhere" nobody knows where... and I like your composition, this is such a good angle; he looks like sitting in the sky and still measuring the tiny world bellow....
      I had an interesting read about this Italian artist who was born in Scotland, lived in Paris and spent the rest of his life in (of course )...London.
      I like the best this sculpture from the others he has in London.

      Most of which happen to be slightly off... ;-) I've always thought Blake was a sublime poet and a crap illustrator (look at "Albion"), but I like your take on Paolozzi's sculpture.
