“overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

this statue is only mentioned so much because of its constant wearing of a traffic cone, but it's the Museum of Modern Art were it is situated that is special.

“Very funny”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

I found this hilarious. Absolutely entertaining. The fact that the authorities take off the traffic cone each morning and the student congregation replaces it each night is quite interesting

Came round the corner staring at fantastic architecture when here was this statue with a traffic cone on it's head! Brilliant and as a previous writer said- it brings a smile to your face as it does look most amusing!
