Skywatch Friday: Ancient & Modern
I abhor the idea of out of town shopping malls as they take the revenue and the heart out of so many town and city centres. Margaret Thatcher and her Tory party foisted them upon the UK from the 1980s onwards, as part of their culture of individual greed and "big business is best" schemes.
But at least the Trafford Centre at Dumplington has some excellent sculptures and statues inside and out, as illustrated here. (I hasten to add that I've only ventured inside about three or four times in the past decade). Also, I have searched in vain to find any information about who the series of statues (built circa 1995-2005?) represent though. I suspect Mammon is one of them...
