What materials were used to make the sculpture? Do you think that this is sculpture or a building? What is the difference? Would you call a brick layer a sculptor? Does the sculptor who designed the gateway have to actually build it?
Tell us what you think of Seamus Dunbar's sculpture
Scale is about looking at the size and proportion of a sculpture. Important cities often had very large gateways and arches leading into them.
