Man with newspaper. A bronze man with newspaper sitting at the side of the street where the old newspaper offices used to be in Kilmarnock.
Not the most attractive of men. Kind of beady of eye, round of face and overall chunky. A bit stern, heavy and solid looking. This does not look like a cheery chappie.
He is definately lacking in the physical attributes held by the statues in Mont de Marsan that I photographed a few weeks back.
I don't think this guy fires the imagination in the fantasy stakes. How many fantasize about the solid dependable (and possibly boring) type.
However he did hit a note with local wags who left a pile of loo rolls beside him and a note saying "Hurry up, are you going to be in there all day?".
Art, however you look at at, whatever you think of it, if it gets a reaction from you, it has done it's job.
