High above Charity Crescent in the suburb of Cathedraltown, came a sculpture called ‘Charity, Perpetuation of Perfection’. “The last thing that would cross my mind would be to raise a life-sized cow with chrome-like finish two storeys in the air and consider that proper,” said local resident Danny Dasilva. “I hate it.”
Donated by well-meaning developer HELEN ROMAN-BARBER, the statue honoured a prize-winning show cow that died in 1988. It was put there with the approval of city councillor ALAN HO – who faced the wrath of the populace.
Anyway, Charity has hit the road. She’s on her way back to Ms. Roman-Barber. Who says the suburbs are dull?
