The Sea People art installation at Walton on the Naze

The Sea People

The Sea People exhibition by Nabil Ali is available to hire alongside the Beach of Dreams pennants.  The 15 large sculptures were first installed in July 2021 on a remote beach at Walton-on-the-Naze.

Looking out to sea, the haunting figures represent lost communities and forgotten ancestors that have been washed away with the eroding coastline along the eastern shores of Essex. Clay gathered from this beach was used to form the figures, as well as other natural materials such as willow, hessian and wax.

SPECIFICATION

  • Various heights: between 0.8m and 2m
