100 Cast Iron Human Sculptures Scattered on Crosby Beach

British sculptor Antony Gormley is known around the world for his figurative sculptures. In fact, his series titled Another Place, which features 100 cast iron sculptures, has turned Crosby Beach into a tourist attraction. Originally, Gormley's pieces were installed on different beaches in Europe (Germany, Norway, and Belgium) and were scheduled to make a move to New York after their display in England, but in 2007 the sculptures officially settled in the Merseyside coastline. Now, they still stand in the sand, weathered and worn by the sea.

The permanent installation consists of 100 life-size figures of men reaching nearly 6' 2.5" and weighing over 1,400 lbs. spread over a 2 mile stretch between Waterloo and Blundellsands. The figures, which are casts of the artist's own body, are scattered about the beach, facing out to the sea. Altogether, the installed sculptures serve to represent the shared sentiments of emigrants who are sad to leave their country but hopeful of their future in a new land.
