Nothing says “this is our town” like a giant, plaque-less structure erected square in the middle of a highly populated area. Though it seems that no one really knows why such things are there. For example, why is there a disembodied anchor slowly rusting outside of a trade school in my area? Why is there a metallic man lying on his front raised just above a koi pond? Why is there a large, circularly-dented, laser-equipped ball of iron floating out in space taking aim at planetoids?
While I’m not so sure on the last one, these are just a few example of creations that once held a meaning, but have now lost all pertinence. Is it that difficult to engrave a tiny plaque with a brief explanation of why such a thing exists? Maybe all the money got spent on the awkward positioning of the figure.
Also, if you are really dying to see pointless immobile objects, I recommend any modern art show.
