Venus and Cupid Sculpture, Morecambe

(2.7/5 based on 85 reviews on the web)
Created in 2004 by Shane Johnstone and dedicated to those who have lost their lives working on the sea this sculpture installed in 2005 after the Chinese cocklers tragedy has become embroiled in a political tribal war which blights Morecambe Town Council. This iconic landmark could be lost if the councillors ignore the wishes of local people and vote to have the sculpture removed. This page has been set up for people to discover the themes and stories behind the sculpture, to add their own comments and to help save Venus and Cupid from demolition.
