The Tin Man
There was a small exhibition in Beeston Square today of some sculptures made from metal. A Giraffe, heron, tortoise and a slightly surreal one of half a man carrying a toolbox. Quite a number of people were stopping to touch them. The artist was standing around with a book, ready to take orders. But I don't think he took any as with the amount of work taken, they would be very expensive.
Gail and I walked by at around 5:30 tonight, and he was loading them his Mercedes estate car. He would have had to drive with the boot up as the giraffe's legs were sticking out!
