In common with most of Gormley's work, the figures are replicas of the artist's own body, and as the tides ebb and flow, the figures are revealed and submerged by the sea. Up close each figure has been worn by the elements - some still in their original iron state, and others covered in seaweed and barnacles.
'Another Place' went on show at Crosby in July 2005, and was supposed to move to New York. It turned out to be so popular that in March 2007, the local council voted to keep the statues there permanently!
They're well worth a look, or even a feel....spot the cheeky sandy handprints in the photo above!
Crosby is just North of Liverpool. Once you get near the town, 'Antony Gormley's Another Place' is well signposted. There is a car park at the beach.
