Black and White: Encrypted

Powerhouse


This artwork fascinates me. It's a cylindrical tower, about ten feet high, with no plaque announcing its title or naming its artist. It sits in the cobblestone courtyard of what was once a brewery, back in the 1800s. The brewery was converted to shops and studios years ago, but is almost completely abandoned now and is in rough shape. Below is a shot of the top half of the sculpture, taken from the elevated parking lot next door.

What do you make of it?

Sculpture or just the (formerly decorated) top of a chimney or vent after it got bashed up by a toppling tree? Like the contrast in #2.

It seems like a mixture of an enchanting and a slightly frightening place. Very fitting for B & W

The shape/sculpture looks as if something has fallen on it. I am sure there are some interesting stories attached to both the sculpture and the old brewery.

Fine photos, strange sculpture! The top certainly seems a bit dented ;)
