“Verity” by Damien Hirst, stands 66.4 ft tall on the pier at the entrance to the harbour in Ilfracombe, Devon, looking out over the Bristol Channel towards South Wales. The name of the piece refers to "truth" and Hirst describes his work as a "modern allegory of truth and justice”. The statue depicts a pregnant woman holding aloft a sword while carrying the scales of justice and standing on a pile of law books. Half of the sculpture shows the internal anatomy of the pregnant woman, with the foetus clearly visible. Some people in this Victorian seaside town find it “ugly", others a a potential boost to tourism. What do you think?
