Open the box!!

Tucked away in the corner of a room in the corner of an art gallery in a corner of a country town in a corner of England is this box

. . . with a packing label . . . let's have a closer look . . .

That's right: Cowboy by Jann Howarth.  I saw this a few months ago at the Barbican in London.  On loan from a gallery in a corner of an English country town.  The Barbican exhibition is over, they've sent it back.  And there is is, still in the box where the postman left it. 

Created for the cover of Sgt Pepper (but not used) it is a grand piece. If the gallery doesn't want it I reckon it would look great leaning against  the Reception Desk at work.
