Not exactly a Leeds thing - but interesting ... nearest seems to be in Arthington.

Does anyone have any information/ideas about these? http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/7022091.stm

I love stuff like that. Be intriquing to find out what it's all about. Yeah i saw it on the news myself. Good carving skills too. No amateur!

It was on GMTV about 6.15 this morning. No sign of the sculptor, but his agent gave a couple of sound bites.

they showed pics of the sculptor leaving one of them at a house at midnight, i liked it all but didnt really understand why they were making such a fuss, unless they were all in on it to publicise the sculptor

or, of course, the overexcitement being on telly does to some folk

and i used to live near that little oasis of prettiness, theres a little known fact to bore you all rigid!

I wonder if the sculptor's inspiration was the Celtic carved stone heads which are dug up from time to time?
I remember reading about these years ago. They are common in the north of England, Yorkshire in particular.
