This is a curious sculpture and the last time I sugested it to Alex I did not found enough info for it to be on a post.

And... well... each time my place appears on the papers they've killed someone...

I live in Darlington. That thing is widely considered to be an abomination. It's not actually in Darlington but between a supermarket car park and a dual carriageway virtually in the countryide. I'm fairly ambivalent towards it to be honest. I can appreciate it as a work of art but I think there could have been something a bit better to commemorate the only reason anyone knows the town exists...

...except for an escaped cow from the local cattle market that somehow made it to the front page of Fark the other week.
