South Shields 'Fisher Folk'.

South Shields  'Fisher Folk'.
The “Conversation Piece” consists of 22 life-sized copper-bronze statues near The Groyne lighthouse at Littlehaven Beach, South Shields. Designed by the Spanish artist Juan Munoz they have been a talking point for the last few years. Locals refer to the figures by various names such as "The Weebles", "The wobbly men" or "The Fisher Folk". Photographed with an Olympus SP55OUZ bridge camera and processed with Nikon Capture NX2.
