Man with Potential Selves

Art In Newcastle City Centre, Tyne And Wear

Three statues sowing the different aspects of a working man of Newcastle.

Just across the road from Newcastle Central Station in the pedestrianised area of Grainger Street are three statues by the sculptor Sean Henry. Named the Standing Man, Walking Man and Floating Man, they are collectively known as Man with Potential Selves.

They represent the alter egos or aspects of an everyday working man from Newcastle.

The statues were commissioned by the Grainger Town Partnership and unveiled in March 2003.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue pele tower up a remote hill, a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
