I don't know!

It's quite a height and although it was a nice sunny day, as usual, the sun wasn't quite in the right position. I intend to go back and see if I can get a better photo and also if there's any note of a scuptor anywhere that I missed before.

I took the sculpture to be symbolic of the crushing of the German Imperial Eagle by the British Empire.
