The Gallery: Extreme Close-Up

The topic on The Gallery this week is to take an extreme close-up.  For once I actually remembered the topic in advance and deliberately took some pictures!  This rather scary chap is the mostly-buried Antony Gormley figure outside the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

I just love the texture on him, which seems to have matured even since I last saw him a couple of months ago.

I previously posted a picture of the entire sculpture in this post.  It seems like I shouldn’t include a wide shot in this post, though I did take some too!
