Byron’s shiny new eye-sore has coped a barrage of jokes and jibes since it was first, ahem, ‘erected’ late last year, but few have suggested the ‘demented darlek’ lacked originality. Until now.
Yesterday a keen-eyed local spotted a strikingly similar structure while undertaking an unrelated Google search.
The sculpture is located in ‘a corporate premises in the UK’ according to the reader.
Like our much-maligned ‘disco dong’, the British sculpture is made from a shell of aluminium birds laid over a column-shaped steel structure.
So is our ‘Schlonghenge’ really original to Byron or can we add unoriginality to the ever-growing list of reasons to look away?
