The Road Untraveled, an art sculpture by Diane Maclean in the grounds of Salisbury Cathedral, England
National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, London displays Nelson’s Ship in a Bottle by Yinka Shonibare, a 1:30 replica of Nelson’s flagship, HMS ‘Victory’ on which he died during the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805. It has 80 guns and 37 sails set as on the day of battle. The richly patterned sails were inspired by Indonesian batik, mass-produced by Dutch traders and sold in West Africa. The sculpture is 15.4 ft long and measures 7.7 ft from the keel to the top of the main mast.
Very unusual reflections on the building in Charlotte, almost like modern art!
Metalmorphosis, in Charlotte, is a modern art piece by artist David Cerny featuring a huge head in the center of a circular fountain. The polished steel surface acts as a mirror reflecting North Carolina’s blue sky and clouds.

When the motorized, internet-controlled segments of Metalmorphosis (in Charlotte) are rotating, the result is an oddly mesmerizing perpetually moving showpiece which alternately looks like a human head—with disturbing, gaping holes where the mouth or eyes should be—or, alternately, like nothing replicated in the physical world.
