The Meeting Place

The Meeting Place is a 9-metre-high (30 ft), 20-tonne (20-long-ton) bronze sculpture that stands at the south end of the upper level of St Pancras railway station. Designed by the British artist Paul Day and unveiled in 2007, with the addition of a bronze relief frieze around the plinth. Originally depicting a commuter falling into the path of an Underground train driven by the Grim Reaper, Day believed the piece to be a "tragi-comic style and was supposed to be a metaphor for the way people’s imaginations ran wild" but revised the frieze before the final version was installed

What an interesting piece of art.
Truly, the bored fellow that is so deep into his thoughts makes a very fitting subject for today.
I remember seeing this, I wasn't impressed with the statue, way too big, but liked the frieze Paul.
I didn't see that last time I visited St.P. - must get down to the Smoke some time.
