Spirit Bird by Bridget McCrum

McCrum has been fascinated since childhood by ancient remains, fragments of carving and standing stones in lonely landscapes. Her travels to cultural sites around the Mediterranean and work on archaeological surveys in Somalia have influenced her work as a stone-carver. This sculpture was inspired by the limestone cliffs, sea and soaring birds of Gozo Island in the Mediterranean.

Gift of Alfred Harrison and Ingrid Lenz Harrison, 2017.

Located in the Harrison Sculpture Garden.
