YSP 4



Yorkshire Sculpture Park  Yesterday's artist was easy to guess ...but what about today's? This piece is called 'Roman Standard'. It features a delicate blackbird perched on a 4 metre high pole and is intended as a contrast to the eagle-topped standards traditionally carried into battle by Roman army to symbolise power.  Would you have guessed Tracey Emin? I didn't.
