Presbyterianism In Practice.

After just a week in place, a sculpture has already been welcomed to Scotland by being decked out in a dashing pink bikini.
The figure of a man - part of the Antony Gormley '6 Times' installation - had the swimsuit added this past weekend. The sculpture is one of six life-size figures from the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art placed along the Water of Leith in Edinburgh.
To be unveiled next week, the statues are still being installed.
The bikini-clad figure is standing in the middle of the Water of Leith in Stockbridge, and can be seen by passers-by on the busy Deanhaugh Street over the river.

Bubbles, they removed the bikini for the opening of the installation by the Artist. One local man interviewed by the TV news for his opinion, stated that he thought it wonderful, that it made that spot on the river so special, so peaceful, that he visited every day. I was convinced.

Teri; yes, it can be very thought prevoking, which, I assume, is the intent of the Artist.
