Debs Balancing and John Maine

Just walking through Salisbury Cathedral close on an early sunny-ish Sunday morning looking at the latest exhibition - John Maine's "Sanctuary". Saw the piece below and thought following on from the stone balancing a bit of Debs balancing was called for.

I really like this piece, it is very grounded and appears to burst from the earth, forcing its way into the light, cutting its way by a slowly rotating  screw thread.  I think its fair to say that the sculpture is placed and does not extend much below the grass which grounds it even more.

So on that note I took a photo and flipped it so the sculpture is balanced on its point and it then becomes a completely different piece, in tune with the world war one commemoration - an artillery shell about to penetrate the earth and explode with catastrophic effect.
