Vulcan by Eduardo Paolozzi

It seems needful to have a photo of someone/something other than myself on this nascent blog - and I can't immediately think of anything finer than the bruising 7-foot bronze that stands on a spot not far south of Newcastle Central Station. It's hard to imagine a time when a piece of sculpture/statuary located conspicuously in the North East won't have some sort of (post-) industrial connotation. But to my eye the 'Vulcan' has always looked like he still knows how to use his hammer...
