Verity

By pink  
Verity is a statue at the entrance to Ilfracombe Harbour in Devon.
It was created by Damien Hirst and is on loan to the town for 20 years (until 2032)
It stands some 25M high and when it was erected it was the tallest statue in England (even taller than the Angel of the North)
It depicts a pregnant Woman with a set of legal scales standing on a pile of law books, half of her is normal and the other half you can see all her internal organs, including the foetus.
It really is a remarkable sight

Well, that's certainly different! Part of me's kind of glad you didn't depict the 'open' side, but the other half would have been fascinated to see it Smile
I like the angle of view here ... makes her look quite alien-like.
