Description"Sculpture by Josefina de Vasconcellos (1904-2005) to honour the heroic lives lost in sea rescues in the British Isles. The sculpture portrays a number of grotesque figures. The lifeboat house can be seen in the background. The accompanying plaque states "The dragon is a well known logo for evil, and here is Man flying from the monster he has encouraged by giving in to its temptations of greed and power. Nature is seen flying from pollution and extermination." "Sea may drown the body, but evil destroys the soul With single minded Effort - Will - and Faith ESCAPE TO LIGHT Like the first man, we stand barefooted on Time's sand Courage and wit will keep the body, but where's the power that can arm a soul against the dragon who would eat it whole? With single minded faith of Soul and Sight Cast out the evil and Escape to Light."" Photo by Oliver Dixon, 2018.
