The Venus and Cupid statue at Morecambe

The Venus and Cupid statue subtitled: Love, the Most Beautiful of Absolute Disasters was designed in 2005 by Lancaster Artist Shane Johnstone. The statue was originally for St Georges Quay in Lancaster but was built instead at Morecambe Bay for the loss of the 24 Cocklers in 2004 in Morecambe Bay.

Johnstone’s Venus and Cupid sculpture is influential of the great British sculpture Henry Moore. Decorated in mosaic tiles, the sculpture of a mother swinging her child has become almost as iconic as the Eric Morecambe statue found further along the promenade.
I love this and the history of you that you’ve shared. Wonderful to post it on here.

Fantastic sculpture. I’m familiar with the Henry Moore sculpture park in Yorkshire, but I love the addition of mosaic tiles
