Yesterday most of us went to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, a favourite venue for mass family outings (and ‘most of us’ yesterday meant all five brothers, four wives/girlfriends, three of our children and my parents. One wife and child were absent). A great place to celebrate my mum’s birthday.

The sculpture below is perhaps the most striking there. Called ‘Sitting’ by Sophie Ryder, it’s a giant naked woman with a lagomorphic head, cut in two to show a man-sized cavity inside. I figured it was all about women being seen as breeding machines, like rabbits. Only it’s a hare’s head, so what do I know? Anyhow, it’s an interesting sculpture that fascinates and disturbs (or, as we said “That rabbit headed woman’s a bit freaky, int it?”).
