Iron Man, Birmingham

(L'homme En Fer???)
I love this statue but not everybody in Birmingham shares my opinion. What I like about it is it is so obviously misplaced in its Victorian surroundings, yet it somehow lends a greater harmony to them by being so incongrous. It's by the noted English sulptor Antony Gormley, who produced the famous Angel Of The North, in Gateshead.
I find it moving.Posted by Picasa
