o.k. ... it isnt really
Its a statue in Lotherton Hall House.
Strangely it seems to have a roman soldier's helmet on.
The house is closed for viewing at the moment.
So cant wait for March to find out about this intriguing statue.

A very sincere thankyou to Nathan (NDODS), Valery (ValeryAst) and Trev. (TrevBatWCC) for their user awards for my War & Piece image.

It's a well-known fact. Roman burglars wore no clothes, but had helmets in order to protect their modesty if disturbed by the lady of the house.
Thanks for the laugh.
