    1. Quite a difference with your shot earlier in the year. Also sporting a pair of glasses now. :)

  8. He's pretty pristine seeing he has probably been waiting for some time.

  9. Rarely is there a public sculpture that features a casually posed figure dressed in a suit. Quite a contrast.

  10. A very realistic sculpture. That hat dates it, though, doesn't it!? :-)
    It must go back to the 1950s.

  11. I believe it was actually made for the Bicentenary as the paper is dated 26 January 1988
