“A mistake”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

This art work is completely out of place. It is out of scale with the quaint harbour. None of the people I met approved of this statue
despite its originator.

“Wierd but Compelling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Amazing statue, the only sad thing is that there was the remains of a funfare so photographs were difficult to get without ugly rides on them

“Enigmatic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Verity on Ilfracome quayside provides a great topic of conversation. I believe the views about the statue are split 50/50. I find it totally fasciniting, my other half has the opposite opinion. She certainly draws in the crowds. A must see for anyone visiting Ilfracombe

“Thought provoking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

I'm not a Hurst fan generally but I was really impressed with this colossal statue. I also like the idea that Hurst has loaned it to Ilfracombe, a town which obviously has a few problems. I think it will definitely bring more tourists to the town which is all to the good. The statue has also sparked lots of debate which is what art is all about allegedly.
