The Miner and the Weaver

Our new statues have now arrived in Morley and the Council have even replanted the flowerbeds. We guessed right in that the man was on the right and the woman the left, but it might have worked better the other way round as the benefactors would be better suited to be round the back methinks. There is a third mini-tombstone as well, advising of CCTV cameras in the area. The close-up of the faces makes them look a bit pop-eyed, carving eyes is always tricky.

I rather like them.

  1. I have great admiration for sculptors. One slip and …. whoops!

    Usually statues’s eyes don’t show the – brain-dead, can’t think what it’s called – the coloured bit in the middle. Iris? That makes it a bit more pop-eyed I think.

  2. There has been more muttering about the sponsors on the front of the miner than the tombstone, CCTV is well known in Morley.
