    Lindy, I think the blank TV screen steals the show.

    They sure go to town, although all that iron-work seems a little over engineered to me. A wire rope is all they use down here.

    Is he not a little low in the beam? The statue reminds me of a ventriloquist's dummy sat on a lap.

    Yes, it does somehow look a bit strange in proportions. The torso is thickset and the legs look too scrawny to support it !

    Shallwe say itsjust a bad sculpture overall,my vision of Wilson was slightly roundish balding hair and a always seen smoking his pipe.

    The sculptor needs shooting.

    I suppose it may not be Harold, but some other 'good guy' called Wilson. There must be one or two somewhere?

    The head(the important bit) looks pretty recognisable,but the build,stance,and posture.........reminds me of Quentin Crisp!!!

    I popped over to here...

    http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.bl...lpture-on.html

    To learn this...

    "One sculpture that I used to like was the Boy with the Horse at the bottom of Bold Street opposite the Lyceum. It was said to have cost 150,000 and I used to love the way the public interacted with it. Though one day I saw a mother drag her child away in horror who was polishing a part of it that it should have been. It has now been turned into a....wheelie bin. Who robbed it? why was it moved? why didn't anyone at the Daily Ghost, er David Charters even notice?
    So Liverpool European Capital of Bad Sculpture where we dump our good art to replace it with, Tom Murphy Turkey's....clever, the people who run our city, so cultured for sure. "

    Does anybody have a picture of this boy & horse?

    Yes, dear Joe. I am fully aware of who the statue is supposed to represent. Alas it is half way between allegory and realism. It may be trying to 'say' that Harold had little behind him Politically. Who knows. It is undoubtedly a crude representation of the HW I remember. I checked out the other offerings that TM has had dumped around your town. Again, maybe this is his, TM's stamp. Like Lowery has match-stick men and match-stick cats and dogs Murphy has ape-armed arse-lessness as his peculiarity? Or schtick I think it's called. (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/schtick)

    Talking of statues; I think the Ken Dodd statue in Lime st station is awful

    The Bessie Braddock one isn't too bad, at least it looks a bit like her.
