Nomad of Antibes

The Riviera Times is running a story on line entitled "Nomad roams no more"

Rarely has a sculpture been so embraced and so enjoyed, as Spanish artist Jaume Plensa’s ‘Nomad’, now permanently installed on the ramparts of old Antibes and pictured left.

The monumental seated figure dominates the skyline, drawing visitors like a magnet. Metal letters representing thoughts make perfect footholds for the adventurous, who climb to its very top. People sit together on the natural seats the arms provide; the whole area, inside and out, invites exploration and perfectly frames the glorious view of the Mediterranean sea and old town.
