Artist's Description

Took this shot some time ago, however I have just learnt that this impressive statue is no longer there. Reason being that Preston Council thought it would be smart to make it out of wood and not regularly treat it – hence it started to rot around the ankles and was removed before it fell into the canal – obviously this is complete rumour.

The statue was 15ft tall and stood over a lock on the canal down the west side of Preston in Lancashire – sometimes known as the ‘Thinker’

This is a shot from below to capture the detail in the face
