Birmingham's parks and garden department, who won a gold medal at Chelsea this year for a garden including wicker sculptures
, have created a sculpture trail in 23 sites around central Brum to celebrate Olympic sportspeople. There's a map on the display boards by each sculpture and also available from Tourist Information at Birmingham Central Library. I first encountered a paralympian tennis player, in her wheelchair, prominently displayed in St Paul's Square (especially celebrating Jordanne Whiley
who is from the West Midlands). I also saw Usain Bolt looking awesome outside the Council House, and a paralympian blade-runner outside Snow Hill Station. Apparently there's also a woman weightlifter somewhere. The photos with the BBC article
don't do the sculptures justice imo (to me the wicker is very suggestive of muscle in anatomical diagrams).
P.S. [Insert Wicker Man joke of your choice here.]
