Northumberlandia...

... the Lady of the North.
Critics aren’t sure what to make of it. “It’s quite difficult to take it seriously,” said Tim Richardson, a London-based landscape historian and critic. “This massive woman you climb up.”

She appears to be a Cyclops.

Charles Jencks is evidently into ugly fat girls. A land sculpture of Mother Earth produced with slag waste from raping Mother Earth. Proves environmentalist will turn their heads in the name of art. Also proves that even bad art is still art.

These boots were made for walking...

I want to hike from the 100 foot breasts to the twat.

Peter said...

I would plant some shrubbery. In the appropriate location.

Isn't there supposed to be a deep and mysterious well someplace?

Big Mike said...

Is someone going to introduce her to the Cerne Abbas Giant?

Peter Hoh said...

I expected that the Other Peter would say something like that.

He's not the kind of guy to beat around the bushes.

Like "Cave Of The Mons" in Mount Horeb?

Methadras said...

That's pretty awesome. Actually the more I look at it, it's kinda looks like the Teletubbies hillside home.

Methadras said...

Also, it looks like she has huge tracts of land.

I now know more about the lady Northumberlandia than the climbing mountain of lies called Benghazi.

Three point of interest!

At first blush Jencks' lady reminds me of Le Corbu's Modulor Man.

I love it. About time Britons took pride in their ancient past.

Darrell said...

Made of "clay, soil and rock excavated from the mine site," not slag.

Slag I would have visited.

Erika said...

I'm rather interested to hear that there are any evangelicals in the area to protest. They probably found a congregation of like 4 of them. According to Wiki, 6% of Britons attend church {not to be confused with mosque}.

Synova said...

Oh, it's fun, isn't it? Wimsey has value, doesn't it? I like it better than that huge pregnant lady with the sword.

AprilApple said...

She could ride the Uffington White Horse.

Bob Ellison said...

She played bass clarinet in high school.

Part of an environmental remediation effort?

Points for trying, but co-opting "artists" won't help coal miners mine.

Chef Mojo said...

I think it's pretty cool, but...

It wasn't mde from a natural formation, like, say Uffington.

It's actually pretty small. I checked it out on Google Earth, and while the Northumberlandia isn't there yet, you can see the tract of land it's on. And the sheep grazing on it. A small car could cover one of her nipples easily. 4 miles of walking can be compressed into a rather small space, as the British have proved adept at, time and time again.

Seeing Newcastle from her forehead is no great challenge, because the land there is pretty level, comparatively speaking. It's close to the coast.

Regardless of the hype, I think it's clever and it'll bring the tourists in droves. Within a few years, I'm sure the pagans will be burning amber on The Lady's vulva with abandon.

Chef Mojo said...

As far as "environmental remediation efforts?" The Lady is surrounded by numerous sites requiring a large number of rape kits for Gaia.

Coals to Newcastle, y'know?

mark said...

...... i get it

.......... i wonder what she'll look like in a thousand years ?

....... that's what makes it such a phkng challenge

Deb said...

He took a hundred pounds of clay
And then he said hey listen
I'm gonna fix this world today
Because I know what's missin'
Then he rolled his big sleeve up
And a brand new world began
He created a woman and lots of lovin' for a man

Clyde said...

Now those are Grand Tetons!

Richard Bublitz said...

I wonder what Moses would have done? Oh, he already did that when he came down from the mountain and saw what his people turned to...
