Anthony Gormley - Everything is going to be alright!

As I have mentioned there have been 6 Anthony Gormley sculptures placed along the Water of Leith. I have now found 5 of them, so only one more to go!

The grounds of the Gallery of Modern Art are beautifully landscaped with many large sculptures dotted around including by Henry Moore.

Not only are the grounds impressive but so is the Gallery Building itself, but then again we have a lot of them in Edinburgh which makes it such a beautiful city.

The outside of the building there is an instillation that reads :-)

Everything is going to be alright!

Well maybe not for the 5th of the Anthony Gromley statues it isn't as it is half submerged in concrete at the entrance!!! Love the humour of it all, just perfect!

I jest, the sculpture definitely seems alright, well he isn't going anywhere! This one might be submerged consistently in concrete, the others are at the mercy of the rise and fall of the river!


  1. That is so funny. You totally made me smile with this : )

  2. The first pic feels like heaven!!!! Your city is interesting!!!
