Here you go! It looks like this.
|Quantum Leap Sculpture, Shrewsbury|
To Mark the 200th Anniversary of Darwin's Birth
This massive sculpture stands 12 metres high and 17.5 metres long with a weight of more than 100 tonnes. What is it? Well, that is open to interpretation. (I will go with 'vertebrae'.) It was designed by Colin Pearce & Ranbir Lal and represents Charles Darwin's scientific ideas and his impact on the scientific world.

And, here we have Charles Darwin Statute outside the museum and library which at one time was Shrewsbury School. That's right, he was a student there. What is interesting to me is that this statute was unveiled in 1897. Seems such a long time ago.

Have a super weekend everyone. Cheers!
