People of Bristol, rejoice. Damien Hirst's 6.7m high statue Charity will be on public display in Clifton until May 2012.

The statue is based on the charity boxes seen in streets until the '80s. Hirst has replicated one the original boxes, but, according to the BBC has also:

'scuffed her appearance and burgled her charity box' as a comment on social injustice.

Deep.
