It certainly is magnificent, Adi.
We're all now looking forward to seeing the Chris Turner statue in August.

That looks fantastic Adi. Are Hedges sculptures all life size because that looks as if it is a touch larger than Dave Whelan himself? Will Chris's statue be modelled to the same size?

Statues are often larger than life.
Anyone interested in Hedges' work should have a look at his website.

Goodness me mate, for a teacher .......... :wink:

Of course it is larger, a 5 ft 6 statue of DW atop a 3 or foot high plinth is going to look somewhat strange, not to say tiny.
Bearing in mind Chris was 6ft 3 or thereabouts and is on a (size tbc) plinth he'll be around the 8 feet mark in all.
It's all about perspective my arty friends tell me

As TP says, check out Sean's website.

Already attached Adi to jacket in readiness, with the Werthers in the pocket. :clap:
