An older one from what seems like a 'statue spot' in Ottawa. I think that one was called the Zoom! V2.

I am not an artist/sculptor, so my first Neanderthal minded name for this was "Explosion in noodle factory"
But, those would be huge noodles, so I then went with "Paper Mache project during a hurricane"
What do I know about art ... I just point a little box randomly at objects & push a button. :p

I am with oyu Doug. It looks like a papier maché experiment that went wrong. But then again I once saw a 'sculpture' that was an old hospital bed just wrapped in thick hemp rope and it was highly regarded, probably by a load of 'artists' that had enjoyed some of the by product of the hemp rope -?

Yeah, I see this statue/sculpture much in the same way, more like a bizarre post-modern mummy of sorts. IMO it doesn't truly make much sense, but it's kinda cool. Nevertheless, it didn't stay there for very long, and what we have now just isn't terrible.

A charming statue and a fascinating story to boot. Ta for that Gawain.

Another look at Malmesbury's contemplating monk

Not that many people outside Malmesbury know that Malmesbury has a very early connection with flying. One of the monks, Eilmer, chucked himself off of a tower on the Abbey! Here is the story

https://www.athelstanm​useum.org.uk …e/eilmer-the-flying-monk/ (external link)

He is remembered in one of the best ways possible as there is now a local brewery called The New Flying Monk Brewery and one of the beers is Eilmers, not at all bad either :rolleyes:8-):mrgreen:

Oh that I was famous enough to have a beer named after me bw!
