Street Life (New Kids on the Block)

Quite literally. Walking over Waterloo this statue appeared one day.

It was not for a couple of days that I noticed several more atop various office blocks and buildings of the South Bank Centre.

Then a couple of days later I spotted several more on rooftops on the North end of the bridge.

Turns out there are 31 of these statues according to the BBC. They are by Antony Gormley who did the Angel of the North and this work is entitled "Event Horizon". It tickled me.

He has such a startled look about him. Let's hope he doesn't get vandalised.

Thanks for the great photo. I'd really like to see these.

I seem to recall they are of the sculptor himself, he used 100 similar figures in "another place" http://preview.tinyurl.com/b7jrs standing on an estuary and appearing/disappearing with the tides
