Follow up: Empty plinth sidelines sculpture

BBC NEWS | UK | England | Southern Counties | Empty plinth sidelines sculpture
New article with picture of the rejected sculpture and the accepted plinth and piece of wood:

The article also has a link to an audio interview with the artist who appears to be taking it all in stride.

I forgot, but this same situation happened to LuRu's uncle. I may get some of the details wrong, but as I recall he got into making metal sculptures of dinosaurs. He decided to make a bird and enter it into the state fair. He spent a ton of time and when he was done he decided the bird needed a place to be, so he whipped out a tree very quickly. The tree was accepted, the bird rejected, and he quit sculpting after that.
