I was very fond of this statue by Raymond Mason, because of the way I discovered it.

One morning in January 1992, I had to get a train Down South to celebrate a friend's birthday.
Being a student, and it being the middle of the week, I was as hungover as hell. So, to clear my head, I chose to walk to Birmingham City Centre along the canal tow-path rather than getting to New Street station by taxi. I got off the tow-path (and back on to the streets) at Gas Street Basin, then headed in to Centenary Square - where I was greeted by *this* view.

The sight made me laugh like a drain. The combination of the statue's form, the Modernist/Brutalist concrete architecture surrounding it, and the dreich weather made me think that it looked like it belonged in Leningrad, rather than in Birmingham.

I was thus glad that, in preparation for taking portraits of the birthday celebrations, I'd loaded a black & white film (ask your parents what these were) into my camera.
Cthulu-only knows what the passing Japanese tourists thought when they saw a scruffy, hungover fool (me) laughing at the thing.
Happy days....

Anyway, the statue was only made of some kind of polyester resin. It should have built it in metal or stone (or concrete), because some twunt set fire to it in 2003, damaging it beyond repair.

It's gone for ever now.
