Don't be Gorm-less...

If you haven't seen it, you must go. If you've already been, well, er, go again.
I am talking about the Antony Gormley installation which consists of 40,000 hand-sized terracotta figures which is on show at Torre Abbey's Spanish Barn.
Each of the figures that make up 'Field for the British Isles' was made by a community of families in St Helens, Merseyside. The sculptor, who is most famous for the The Angel of the North, directed the work.
Now the piece, which was instrumental in Gormley's Turner Prize victory in 1993, is the centrepiece of the abbey's year of contemporary art.
Amelia Marriette, keeper of art, said: "The exhibiting of Field for the British Isles is the start of a new era for Torre Abbey as a major centre for contemporary arts in the region. Field will create a strong impression on all that come to see it."
