Sculpture by the Sea (14)

The Eight, Stephen King. Inspired by the time his three daughters were rowing. It describes the moment when the boat is held aloft just before the strok-side and bow-side rowers part to shoulder the boat.

I interpreted this one quite differently before I read the catalogue. To me they were women bearing the weight of the world on their shoulders.

I took one look and thought, "Oh damn, I should have been lifting more weights. Those girls are in shape!!!"
