MANY THINGS MIGHT SPRING TO MIND WHEN ONE THINKS ABOUT THE ANDERSTON AREA OF GLASGOW, but I would wager that Hippopotamuses is not chief among them.
Nevertheless, when Anderston was deemed to require civic or public art, sculpture of a wee hippo family was thought fitting.
Now, I don’t know about anyone else, but the hippopotamus is neither native nor representative of the area in question. I thought it best just to mention that lest readers of this blog jump to the wrong conclusion.
Things are getting worse when this sort of thing can happen, and when this sort of thing barely raises a quizzical eyebrow!
