Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

'Inner Man' sculpture on Frank Bruce Sculpture Trail

Near the forest of Inshriach lies a trail of sculptures made from fallen caledonian pine. Frank Bruce was a self-taught artist who wanted his art to be accessible to all. The state of decay is intentional. He wanted his sculptures to naturally return to the earth from which they came.

As a child Frank preferred to be outside rather than be stuck at school. He was more interested in the beauty and wisdom of nature. He has left us a gift that leaves a lasting impression, even though the lifespan of his art is temporary. In this peaceful natural setting some of his sculptures ask deep questions which are timeless.
