South African-born, London-based sculptor Jill Berelowitz has unveiled Core Femme as part of the Westminster City of Sculpture Festival. A six-metre high spinal column made from female torsos cast in resin and gracefully threaded onto a stainless steel pole, the sculpture will tower over visitors to Cavendish Square until October 2011. According to the artist, the work is a ‘metaphor for human strength of character, wisdom and spiritual growth’. There’s more on the festival here and here.
