London Piccadilly Circus - Nov 2016 - Not Eros but Anteros

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anteros

This is not a statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus but Anteros, his better-looking younger brother. Now that the Circus has been pedestrianised it is possible to get some great pictures of it, particularly as he's had spit and polish applied recently.

Anyway, for all that he will never tarnish too badly as he is made of aluminium, the first statue in the world to be made of it... unless you know better, of course.
