She's is making a bold attempt to escape from her netting prison...obviously missing her pigeon friends.
Chris: That is what it looks like Ray. I aught to know about this imprisoned beauty in the heart of Bath but I, to my shame, do not..
This looks great in B&W - and I love the reflections!
Chris: Right in the centre of Bath Ellie, she has been looking down on the public for probably centuries
Rather an odd sculpture I think, Chris.
Chris: Oh it's odd alright Frank but I think it is the real thing, an 18th century object

Oh, I can imagine how the pigeons loved her - I would like to know her name. Nowadays Mr. Trump shows often this bold gesture. We Germans are 'burnt children'.
Chris: I would not wish you to be burnt children Philine, you deserve better than that..
She seems to have a bunch of grapes on her head
Chris: And why not..

Please, read the name of the sculptor!
Chris: I cannot quite decipher it Philine
I hope you are talking about the bird on his head. That is bold indeed!
Chris: I think it's HER head!

She's not going to be bothered by pigeons, I',m pleased to see. Its a shame that we don't seem to adorn modern buildings with such figures. The Lovely Ladies of Scumsville would look good on the five star gastronomic emporiums that line the leafy boulevards.
Chris: Were the maidens to hail from Scumsville surely the buildings might need reinforcing to take their err...girth
It looks like she was holding up something...
Chris: Maybe the traffic Larry!
It looks as though the head was a later addition!
Chris: I just looked again Tom, you might well be right..
