This sculpture that sits on the path leading through the Perth Cultural Centre towards the Art gallery has always caught my attention. It's very tall and the face is a little bit scary looking, although I don't think it's meant to be, it certainly didn't seem to be intimidating the group of schoolchildren sitting on the steps. The sculpture is dedicated to 'the plight of torture victims' and was designed by Gerhard Marcks and cast in bronze in Berlin by Giesserie Barth in 1981. I haven't been able to find out exactly how tall this sculpture is, but I do know that it seems to be impossible to take a picture of it without the sun glaring around the head area and causing an effect that to me looks like 'breathing on a cold day', or is that just me being a little fanciful? Oh and that is actually the name of this piece 'The Caller'.
