Gallos by Rubin Eynon, Tintagel Castle, Cornwall, May 2021
This 8-foot-tall bronze sculpture stands on the cliffs of Tintagel. It is named Gallos, taken from the Cornish word for power. This dominant piece of art, clutching what looks like the Excalibur sword, is thought by most people to be the legendary King Arthur. Officially, though, this statue represents not only the legend of Arthur but the royal heritage and historic importance of the site of Tintagel as a whole.
