Lincoln Drill Hall by Paul Thompson Photography

This is the giant face which is turning heads in the centre of Lincoln. The sculpture, the work of artist Rick Kirkby, has been placed on the large end wall of the Drill Hall in the city.

It takes the form of a large metal face, welded together from small strips of stainless steel which will look out towards the main entrance of the venue.

This wonderful sculpture lit with the lunchtime suns rays splintering refracted shards of light and shade all over the redbrick wall the metalliic visage was fixed to.
