Known by their fruits
Known by their fruits
Grim-faced fruit trader beside the Asda (formerly Dales) supermarket (clockwise) car park on Mill Way, Milton Regis. This sculpture by Mark Folds weighs 10 tonnes, and is made of limestone. It was the winner of the 1995 Rouse Public Art Award.
Richard Dorrell LinkExternal link tells me,
"... the man is "grim faced" because he is a worker from the brick making industry - he is dressed in typical brick maker clothing, and pushes a 2-wheel barrow of the type used to carry clay from where it was dug to where the bricks were made. The fruit and hops in his barrow in the sculpture are symbolic, showing Sittingbourne to be a centre for fruit and hop growing as well as brick making."
