Photographer's Note

Walking along Broad Street in Oxford with a group of TE friends last weekend, I spotted this naked man standing high up on a building. I was worried that he might be attracted to the pretty redheaded girl with nice legs walking below and might perhaps fall or jump.

But I need not have worried at all as he has nerves of steel - well, iron actually, because this naked man is another artwork of the famous Anthony Gormley, being cast in iron, weighing half a ton and being a replica of the artist himself, just like the group of figures he has "planted" on the beach at Crosby in Merseyside - you can see one of them here.

If you look at this page, you will see details of how this statue was hauled up to this elevated position on Sunday, 15th February, 2009, and you can see a wider view of this same picture in my workshop picture.
