As with much of Gormley's works, these are temporary instellations the intention to inspire and create thought. You can see why he put him there looking down into the water a lovely little spot of canalside vernacular architecture and waterway engineering to visit.

We went in search of this piece of sculpture after reading about it in the local paper. What a wonderful spot they have found, the water adds to the scene and you want him to come to life. Very lucky to have our own Gormley...More

Not easy to find but a lovely spot. Head for Lowsonford. This is right at the lock opposite the Lock Keeper's Cottage and can be viewed from the bridge. Pleasant to stand and watch the barges on the canal. Roads are very narrow country lanes...More

It is a bit strange to find such a work of art standing by a narrow canal in the heart of Warwickshire. It’s a nice piece of art worth we stumbled on by sheer luck. No close parking.

A brilliant and moving work of art which should have a permanent place at this location. Only spoiled by a graffito by which some mindless dimwit has defaced the work.

Only a fraction of the size of the celebrated Angel of the North but lovely to see just standing by the canal. Well worth seeing.
