This was my (Digby) first visit to the City of Almeria for over 20 years and I did not get much chance to look around as a visit to the tax office (90 minutes to collect a simple form) and to a hypermarket took up most of my morning. These statues of two torsos at the bottom of the Rambla de Belén caught my eye. From what I can remember this was a dried up river bed which was used as a car park. Now it is a beautifully paved tree-lined avenue.
In our old home town of Truro, Cornwall, there has been outrage over the erection in the city centre of a statue of a naked Cornish miner beating a drum (you can look up photos of it on google). Although the drum partially conceals his genitalia, they are evident and thus have caused offence to many of the good citizens of Truro. We wonder how they would react to this pair of statues which are surely more erotic.
