Gormley

In Broad Street, Oxford you can see an Anthony Gormley sculpture high up on a roof. Well they say its a Gormely but from that distance it is difficult to tell. Could be a Joe Blogg’s or just a plastic copy. I suppose we will just have to take ‘their’ word for it.

How do you know that Anthony Gormley doesn't look like that?? LOL

I must admit, having been to see the ones on the beech at Formby/crosby (you'd think I'd remember which given that was the point of the day out) they are a) a bit scary looking... b) a complete waste of time/money and c) made me feel inadequate in the trouser department ;-)


The walk through the woods to get to them was nice enough though...
