Outside...

Whats outside your front door?
 When we take a moment to really look we can sometimes see some amazing things in unusual places.
 This sculpture was placed on a roof top of the Roundhouse in Chalk Farm.  It's by the Artist Antony Gormley, and is part of a collection of sculptures dotted around London.  Next time you go out take time to really see what is around you, you may be in for an unexpected surprise!  It reminded me of the Vigeland sculpture park that I went to in Oslo last year which charted the different stages of life.
The park contains 192 sculptures with more than 600 figures, all modeled in full size by Gustav Vigeland who also designed the architectural setting and the layout of the grounds. If you ever get a chance to visit Oslo put it on your list of must sees!
