If you were the operator of a boom lift or a scissor lift, which of these jobs would you prefer? Cleaning windows in Berkeley Street, Mayfair?
Or putting the final touches to this new-build in Porchester Road, Bayswater?
Or dismantling a giant statue in Regent’s Park? The Sculpture Garden featured on this blog on Sunday was emptied of its art on Monday.
I had fun watching the movers from Mtec dismantle the huge KAWS statue. You can’t see from the photos, but there was a man inside the hole where the left arm had been.
My enthusiasm for the Sculpture Garden even got a mention in the local paper – tucked away on page 57 of Monday’s Evening Standard. You can still find my Letter to the Editor in the online edition, if you click here and navigate past the mismatched headline and photograph to the letters headed “Let’s keep the sculpture park”.
