Urban Art 2
Another image from my trip to London last summer. This is a statue of Oliver Cromwell in front of Parliment. Urban art gives the city memory of things that happened in its past. Cromwell is thought of as a hero by some and a villian by others. Should he be in front of parliment? I guess it is too late. because there he stands.
