Melted For Scrap

Historic England has belatedly twigged that publc "art" is "diappearing before the public's eyes". A growing number of sculptures, architectural friezes and murals made between WWII and the mid-1980s have been destroyed, sold, lost or stolen. Lynn Chadwick's The Watchers (1960) was stolen from Roehampton University, South West London. A load of tripe, it was begging to be melted down (CLICK).

Seasons Greetings Ian

Thought this ice sculpture gallery may be worth a blog.
