It is the only work of art I think I have being able to touch, beautiful sculpture and a hell of a story. Read up on it and you can see the English are not popular in them olden days.

We were there for about a second honestly it was pretty disappointment, we stood in front of the statue for 2 seconds without any awe etc which we kind of expected seeing as in its meant to be such a landmark.....then proceeded to walk around

I'd actually seen the copy of this statue in Tokyo before I saw the original here in situ. Hugely expressive sculpture, but the experience was actually better in Tokyo. It is in a park across from the Town Hall. In fact, the best views of the Town Hall are from this park. When I got there, there were children climbing on the statue. No problem. I waited, and waited. After about 20 minutes I decided there was not going to be a time soon when there weren't people climbing on it or standing way up close. No great photos then, no panoramic view of the statue + Town Hall. The statue itself is tortured, realistic, motion in stone. No wonder it draws crowds. Couldn't find a plaque or a notice explaining who these guys were nor why they were so unhappy. Fortunately, I'd read all about it in Tokyo. Text available in Japanese and in English. Nice flowers all around.
