Been up there today, lovely statue. Workmen were cementing the cobbles around it.

I know most will not agree but I cannot see the connection to workers who lost their lives and that statue.

Sorry folks.

I have to agree. What about a statue to folk who lost their life through medical negligence, or those who died because of poor parental advice about diet, or those whose parents allowed them to become drug addicts and die of an overdose, or those who couldn't work the welfare system and committed suicide?

I think it's because it's been made from old work tools and machinery parts. I never saw the connection with a big girls head and miners myself but nobody moans about the dream. It's a really good statue anyway, the details in it up close are amazing.

You may like it as a statue, but it is the connection that I cannot see.

It looks like the elephant Man with that cloak over it, may be they should leave it on, it would scare the vandals away .
