Seated peddler

 

The city has a number of these sculpture casts, usually serving to indicate a pedestrian street, rather more imaginative than the typical bollard: Boras is Sweden's equivalent of Manchester - the textile capital - and the peddler (knallen in Swedish) gives his name to the outlet centre on the edge of the city, "Knalleland". I liked the idea of the old peddler gazing on the river and park beyond like the couple on the seat.

Ah, yes - I can see the pack on his back. At first I though it was a fat duck
Tom Wilson: Martine seems to have had the same thought!
A good idea for bollards, really.
Tom Wilson: Yes, very good and presumably readily reproducible.
What an unusual lookingthingy.
Tom Wilson: Isn't it?
It is a most attractive piece of work Tom, as you say far better than a bollard.
Tom Wilson: Yes they do a good job of blocking off the street!
