This is an old news article i came across featuring local artist Laim Curtin. He is a public sculptor for Greater Manchester and other major cities around the country. This particular piece was produced as a thank you gift to Wythenshawe Hospital after receiving treatment there for cancer. For this piece he has collected 3,000 test tubes and filled them with different shades of paint. The image formed when viewed from a distance is of Mary Seacole, a Jamaican nurse who defied the authorities to help the wounded in the Crimean War of the 1850's.
