Statues

The stone unhewn and cold

Tom Murphy's Billy Fury, Albert Dock, Liverpool, Merseyside, L3

Becomes a living mould,

Ivor Roberts-Jones' Sir Winston Churchill, Parliament Square, Westminster, SW1P

The more the marble wastes,

Rowan Gillespie's Famine Memorial, Dublin Quayside, Dublin 1

The more the statue grows.

Edward W. Wyon's Richard Green, East India Dock Road, Poplar, Tower Hamlets, E14

From Michelangelo’s Sonnet
