    Men of Invention, Birmingham, UK


    Outside the House of Sport (formerly the Register Office) on Broad Street, Birmingham, UK, stands the statue of Boulton, Watt and Murdoch, nicknamed 'The Golden Boys' or 'The Carpet Salesmen'. It is the work of William Bloye, formerly head of sculpture at Birmingham School of Art and was unveiled in 1956.

    I like this; not sure about the black, I think grey but it is very nice nevertheless.

    I don't mind the black so much, but wonder about it being applied underneath the statue. I wonder if the 'floating' effect works?
