Londonist Readers Have Filthy Minds

Has anyone else noticed the increasingly suggestive nature of London's sculptures? Reader James certainly has, pointing us in the direction of this 'angelic ringpiece' recently installed in Islington Green. Says he:

Personally I see it as a Jungian response to the overt Freudianism of the weird pointy thing at Spitalfields.

He means this thing —->

We should probably curb our pictorial innuendo there and adopt less flippant tones, given that the Islington sculpture is the granite centrepiece of a new war memorial (so no commenting on the adjacent man with the 12 foot hose). It was designed by John Maine, the same chap who brought us those odd concrete half-circles outside the National Theatre. The new-look gardens and war memorial are due to open in September.
