There is no way that you could miss this piece of art. I’m not sure that it is particularly beautiful but I don’t suppose the artist planned it so. The main concept are riddles

When future generations look back I can't believe they will see this as something worth keeping. Not beautiful or inspiring. Michelangelo it certainly is not. Get ride of it.

This is a beautiful monument and very thought provoking. It should be in the middle of the road to show it off to advantage. About time High St was completely pedestrianised!

This is located on Exeter high street on the pavement and is a sculpture of thick metal. It is kind of an elongated triangle in shape and is very polished and shines in the sun.

A very good idea but when the area is busy it may be a little difficult to read it all, I haven't completed it yet. A good landmark and it has alway looked clean well kept when I have seen it.

Passed by this on a day trip to Exeter. It has verses from the Exeter Riddle book written on it. The history is quite interesting and it is something different!!

English eccentricity laced with modernism with a touch of Victorian puzzle thinking: how more English panache can you get? Brilliant!
