A few days ago, Bilbo had an essay on who should rate a statue or some other kind of honor. While politicians (oops, statesmen!), military figures, and allegorical figures are often publicly honored, some communities have unique statues.
Metropolis, Illinois has a statue honoring the Man of Steel.
Enterprise, Alabama has a statue of a boll weevil.
Dublin, Ireland has a statue of a character from a song, sweet Molly Malone, which wags call "the Tart with the Cart."
And Lviv, Ukraine has a statue of Ritter Leopold von Sacher-Masoch.
I conceive of a bronze monument to a stripper to be displayed just off Exit 7 near Ardmore, TN. She would be doing an intricate pole dance. Who knows? It may become the premier sculpture of southern Tennessee.
