Civic Centre Neptune.

This magnificent statue of Neptune welcomes you to the civic centre. As you can see he pours water on to himself and it drips down him and the wall. The reason for Neptune is due to Newcastle's long history with the sea. A LONGER VIEW is here.

Very interesting scultpure. The details of the water dripping is quite realistic and powerful... even though it looks like more blood ;-)

I like the way the rust works with the piece as a whole . It reminds of a bloody crucifix or something.
