To jcpix: Hi Jason

  • Hi Jason,
    Thanks for the comments on this, its one of my favourite piece of road art around the place, and something that always makes me wonder about the sense of its location.
    The statue is made from rather sharp and rusted sheets of metal, hammered together to make the outline of this legendary hero. However, its positioning in the centre of a rounabout on an offramp from a motorway seems questionable.

    So how can we get traffic to slow down? I know, lets put a 15 foor razor sharp statue of a bloke with a big spear in a well chosen location. They say the safest drivers would be those with a big spear sticking out of the steering wheel, this must be like a bigger version of that!
    All the best
    Noel
