This strange collection of public sculptures includes really iconic pieces such as The Angel Of The North. Then again, I guess out of context, and in the UK, that could still be slightly puzzling.

I adore the hanging rhino sculpture as it excites and intrigues me, with just a hint of danger. It's everything an edgy public art sculpture should be.

Implications - Public sculptures manage to draw tourists in because they are unusual and randomly placed. Tourists will most likely take a photo beside it and then post it online. This then gains exposure for the city as unusual statues will spark tourists to find them and further expose the city and its culture.
