Pendle Sculpture Trail In Woods By Philippe Handford

Posted by Ujagar Singh on 18 Dec 2012 07:36 PM

Artist Philippe Handford has created the Pendle Sculpture Trail,an unconventional artistic project in England consisting of various original sculptures along a special pathway.Philippe’s sculpture work is site specific and is inspired by the beautiful Pendle area and natural materials found in the wood. His organic sculptures uses felled trees,a wind blown tree,holly bushes and a dry stone wall that runs the full length of the wood. The most impressive piece to be found on the trail is his Reconnected 2.The installation,built on site will evoke a sense of perpetual movement and capture the moment when the mighty trees felled. The holly bushes,known to ancient druids as ‘spirits of the wood’,have been contained within metal cages fashioned into human forms provide an eerie presence among the trees. A great inspirational work,unique in itself.

I learnt today that Pendle means hill hill, which means Pendle Hill means hill hill hill, this might sound silly if you don\'t aleadry know, but Pen\' meant hill in Celtic, then when the Olde English came over they decided to name it hul\' which was the Olde english word for hill, Penhul then became Pendle, then a few hundred years later someone noticed it was on a hill and named it Pendle Hill. Apparently there are other examples like River Esk, which means river river. How fascinating our language is.Enough of that, I came across your blog due to learning that fact, your pictures are lovely and I especially like the one with the bats as they are hard to capture.
