My turn to be the pedant.Re the photograph. It isn't Eros,it's Nike,the pagan goddess of victory.What she is doing on a Christian monument I have no idea.In fact there is a lot of esoteric symbolism on the war memorial.The obelisk itself is a symbol of the Egyptian sun god Ra. Libertywho sits at the base of the column holds aloft the torch of Lucifer and wears the" liberty cap" worn by the Phrygian priests of Baal when they conducted human sacrifices. There's lots of things hidden in plain sight, if you look at the symbol the atheists use there's another hiding inside it.

Blimey Nixon, you have spent alot of time looking at the war memorial in detail. I like a bloke who actually knows that kind of information, thank you for that, I will look at her all differently now. Like a kind of ecumenical experiment in sculpture.
