The sculpture attracts a lot of attention from people walking the Thames Path. Whereas some public art in the area attracts only the odd glance as people pass by, this one really draws people in, and it is a pleasure to watch them exploring the details and having their photos taken with the little group. Love it or hate it (and I've heard both opinions expressed frequently) it certainly makes people stop and look. If the role of public art is to make people think about what they are looking at and what is represented, this one seems to succeed.
As usual, you can click on any of the photographs to see the bigger image, which may help to pick out some of the details.
