|'Strange Meeting (Massive abstract Public Art sculpture)' by John Atkin|
|Description: Massive Very Large Big Public Abstract Modern Contemporary Stone Granite Marble Civic Urban Art by the Sculptor John Atkin who is particularly renowned for his Urban Civic Pride Commissions.|
He says of the Magnificent Statue:-
"Strange Meeting is huge two-part sculpture, being 3m square of 27 tons of flesh coloured marble, cut from a single piece, sourced from a Chinese quarry which is the size of Wembley stadium.

They were created by John Atkin to be instantly identifiable with the contours of the body: therefore,
the sculpture is derived from the human figure but is not obviously figurative.
