Art is important in public places particularly for tourist. This piece of art is well made and Ipswich needs far more dotted around and it does not have to be of people.

It is a statue. Do not travel too far just for this but if you happen to be passing and remember the cartoons of Giles then you will appreciate it.

On arrival in Ipswich I visited the really helpful tourist information office, who said that this was a must.

It would probably have been better if it was not surrounded by fast food vans and people smoking.

Still nice to see, but it is a statue, not that special.

This looks good, but it tends to be a gathering place for people with cigarettes, and butts left everywhere. It should be respected more. It must have cost a great deal, but a little bit of a waste of taxpayers money
