The new sculpture is hoisted into place
There's a new face in town!
This is the giant face which is turning heads in the centre of Lincoln. The sculpture, the work of artist Rick Kirkby, has been placed on the large end wall of the Drill Hall in the city.
It takes the form of a large metal face, welded together from small strips of stainless steel which will look out towards the main entrance of the venue.
"We are very excited about the arrival of the face. We know it will divide opinion, as public art always does, but we think it will look absolutely stunning and quickly become an icon for the city," said Simon Hollingworth, the manager of the Drill Hall.
But what do you think?
