The City Museum has a number of works by the sculptor Tom Otterness and there are some others around town. On the surface, the art is simple, even childlike, but just below the effect may be very disturbing. This appears to be the end-game of a whale hunt, in which the smiling prey has turned the tables on the hunter. Give it more than a glance and it is horrifying. I doubt the children passing by pay any attention.
