HAVERIGG 06A - Escape to Light
'Escape to Light' by Josefina de Vasconcellos and the Inshore Rescue Station at Haverigg near Millom in Cumbria, UK.
This seven tonne sculpture, carved from magnesium limestone, was installed near to the Haverigg Inshore Rescue Station in 2003 and was dedicated to all Inshore Rescue Teams in the UK. Escape to Light was the last major work of Josephina who began working on it in 1994, when she was almost ninety! In 'Escape to Light, she wished to show “the spirit of man escaping from the evils of this world and from his own part in this destruction."
