The Whimsical Statue at Swansea Marina. Astrology, Sculptures, Art and the reading of the signs with the help of astrogeography: an opposition between Cancer and Capricorn and a leaning statue as an image for undecided situations:
The Whimsical Statue located at Swansea Marina, Wales, UK – depicts ‘Captain Cat’ from Under Milk Wood, by welsh poet Dylan Thomas. The statue was created by sculptor Robert J R Thomas, and unveiled in 1990.
The opposition between Cancer and Capricorn stands for conflicts between indivdual emotionality and public responsibility, personal likings and duty, empathy and rejection, sympathy and antipathy, feeling at home and leaving, living in water or on dry land, modernity and classicism.
The leaning position of the statue stands for conflicting energies and topics as in the case of the leaning Tower of Pisa – standing, falling or lying – the situation appears as undecided.
