the plaque says something about how the local council has looked
after the environment and collaborated with various businesses
etc....they didn't spend much money on this tribute. what did they
use as a mould....I know what I think it is, any ideas?

So they've informed themselves so well about their local environment that they realise a ferrous-reinforced piece of tat like that will degrade in a cold salt atmosphere faster than you can say "municipal eyesore" & have decided on this (already cracked) extrusion as a symbol of the power of nature over human hubris?

my theory is that they used a wheelie bin as a mould......

exactly what I guessed.

just the thing for a self-congratulatory hunk of concrete with a plaque on it.

Looks like an upside down trash bin to me. On the eyesore side, definitely.

I can see that. Hmmmmm. Art is in the eye of the beholder. Definitely isn't in my eye.

I love 'house' but hate the bin thing with a passion...

Careful, Seaneeboy, I might throw back! ;) Different eyes make the world go 'round and all that.

I have actually been hit on the head by a flying rock on this beach....very painful

kids 'eh....

Ow! That's nasty. Rocks can do a lot of damage. Some kids got one of our cats right in the eye once. Cat ended up in surgery, we ended up with a hefty bill, and I almost killed a kid.

yeah I saw the wheeliebin shape immediately. we're constantly drumming it into the kids that throwing rocks is not a good idea so I'm very disappointed at Seaneeboy's reaction to Caine's "art blindness", he should have more compassion.

It's just virtual rocks, Para. As an artist myself, I'm well aware everyone isn't going to like my art; I'm also aware not everyone else's particular vision will appeal to me personally.

I'm slightly disappointed to see you got the rachel whiteread thing in there - i was going to show off...
