SJ8498 : The Tib Street Horn

near to Manchester, Great Britain

The Tib Street Horn
The Tib Street Horn
This bizarre combination part saxophone, part dragon which, at first glance, could be mistaken for some sort of Heath Robinson device or something from a Terry Gilliam movie, is “Tib Street Horn”. It is an urban landmark sculpture designed to announce the gateway to Manchester's Northern Quarter.

The horn was created in 1999 by David Kemp, a Cornish artist who is well-known for his assemblage sculptures, a technique first developed by Picasso. Tib Street Horn is situated at the intersection of Tib Street and Church Street, on the top of the ruins of a Victorian hat factory opposite SJ8498 : Affleck's Palace.
