This new London sculpture can be viewed only twice a day

Jason Taylor is an artist who has become famous for his underwater sculptures. This time he created a very odd sculpture right in the Thames and entitled it "The Rising Tide".


The peculiarity of the sculpture is that people can enjoy it only two times a day when there is a low tide. When the tide is high the sculptures are hidden in the water.

The installation consists of four figures of horsemen – two children and two stout men in suits.

The men in suits serve to symbolize authorities and businessmen who treat our nature recklessly, and children – our future generation that will have to face serious ecological problems sooner or later. The four horses have oilwell pumps instead of their heads which is also rather symbolic.

The author says he hopes his message will be understood by people and that it will make them realize the danger of a climate change caused by men's activities.

Besides the symbolism represented by the art...I would like to bring your attention to the waters edge in the photograph...I see a trashy shore line...I think it's obvious that they should work on current problems and lead by example...the future would then take care of itself!!!

John. I see you have been blessed by another kool-aid drinker. And such a cogent and insightful counter to your post.
