Nice one Brian!

Like it or not I bet more photos have been taken of this than any other "NEW" thing introduced into Wigan for a while.

True, I've seen a few taking photos. For the record, I like it. ;)

Much, much better than the one I took, from same viewpoint, with camera on my mobile phone, Brian !!!

It has certainly brought new life to that area of Wigan. I have seen some perfect expressions of sheer delight and expressions of pure horror too.
Brilliant photo Brian :o)

The photo is good enough,not taking anything away from Brian. As for the 'Subject', I'll just say, I wouldn't go out of my way to see it.

the photo is a cracker, but as for the " subject " i agree with janet, what is it supposed to represent ? someone with half a brain ?

Odd as it looks, its grown on me I like it, looks incredible from that angle.

its enough to scare the little un's away from the children's library !!

I like this face but its a shame its up a little side street where it wont be seen by many Wiganers or visitors to our town.

If it was me I would have located it where it could be seen by passing traffic.

Did they try to site it at the side of the plot first? it's a shame they had to put it over the "maze".

Must be the image of a Wigan planner:
All face, no brain behind!! ;o)

Lived in Wigan ten years ago. This is a nice addition to a nice part of the town.
