I think this is one of the worst pieces of "art" I have ever seen, I guess we all have differing tastes, but this is beyond me. Badly placed, on the toilets, it makes me cringe, it's embarrassing!

Ok, makes you think. Mostly why? But also why not? Bizarre style police man with a fly swat over a public toilet but then why not? Anyway quite like Ipswich's quirky statuary. Not sure whether this is the most odd or the random trawlerman?

Walked by that statue but i didn't find it interesting at all. Nothing special. Didn't understand the purpose of that statue in the area.

This sculpture is such good fun I enjoyed searching for it. It is quite a surprise on top of the public toilets but certainly brightened my day.

Placed on top of the toilets. It provides welcome change of scenery and a bit of fun to add to the landscape.

Visible if you are driving along past the Regent towards town this unusual sculpture sits proudly atop the toilet block. Fun piece which will raise a smile!
