"Silvas Capitalis" - Kielder Forest -Northumberland
Kielder Water and Forest Park is home to a unique collection of art and architecture located at sites around the lake and within the forest. Silvas Capitalis (a play on the latin for "forest head") is a giant timber head created by American artist's collective SIMPARCH. The head has been conceived as a watcher, an imagined presence who has observed the passing occupation of the landscape over the past millennia and how the environment has dramatically changed during the last one hundred years with the coming of the forest and more recently the lake.
