Walking through the shopping area in Exeter city centre, we came across the Exeter Riddle Sculpture. Its certainly a riddle! Still have no idea what it was meant to be!

I read the poetry and didn't know the answers! Not wishing to be clever I know the answer only because a guide told me.

Lovely scupture/ installation on the high street. Trying to read the words is a bit of a challenge but a great piece of art. Needs a bit more explication by it.

The Exeter Riddle Sculpture is simply a must for adults and youngsters alike. It is certainly not a quick job to solve but it is fun to work through the clues.

Popped along today to see the Exeter Riddle sculpture, right in the middle of the high street and dated from 2005. The sculpture is still in amazing condition and well worth a look.

There is no way that you could miss this piece of art. I’m not sure that it is particularly beautiful but I don’t suppose the artist planned it so. The main concept are riddles

When future generations look back I can't believe they will see this as something worth keeping. Not beautiful or inspiring. Michelangelo it certainly is not. Get ride of it.

This is a beautiful monument and very thought provoking. It should be in the middle of the road to show it off to advantage. About time High St was completely pedestrianised!
