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!

My 5 year old grandson absolutely loves this statue & shouts "Nanny, it's the man" every time we go past it in the car or walk into town! I think it's very clever & love the flies, especially on a Public toilet!

Spotted this on our walk around this historic town. Did not realise it had a name! Unusual and interesting.

The title says it all: an amusing sculpture affixed to a public lavatory. For many a visitor the work will provide something of an amuse bouche, an appetiser, as it were, for a visit to the lavatorial facility.

This statue is excellent and makes me smile every time I see it! Just the kind of thing we need to lighten our lives these days. It is larger than life and on top of a decent block of toilets, so appropriately placed to make...More
