It’s Not Every Day You Get To Sit On A Giant Sperm

But in Jupiter Artland you can. These sperm shaped benches top the terraced earthworks of Charles Jencks’ Life Mounds.

You can also see a crouching man made up of constellation points (Firmament, Antony Gormley), mirrors peeling away from a wall like flyposters (A Forest, Jim Lambie), some creepy girls throwing a tantrum (Weeping Girls, Laura Ford), and many other artworks.

It’s a fun place to explore and a nice day out from Edinburgh.

    • Hi Juliet, I would also recommend paying a little extra for the guided tour if you do go. It’s interesting to get a bit of an insight into how and why the artists chose their spots.

    • Hi Misha

      Thanks for stopping by. I think the bent mirrors were my favourite. There are five tantrum-throwing girls lurking amongst the trees and none of them have faces. Very creepy!
