Alfred as public art.

OK I love the Gorillas in and around Bristol. I loved the pigs in Bath too. In fact, I didn't realise it consciously, but I love what’s now described as ‘public art’.
Apparently, according to Wikipedia, this term refers to “any works of art in any media that have been planned and executed with the specific intention of being sited or staged in the physical public domain, usually outside and accessible to all”. Church – public art, or private collection?
This is Alfred - or no 56 based in Brislington, just up the road. Nearly caused a crash, stopping to take the picture!
