Bloody students!?


I'm sure statues in other cities get similar treatment, but for those unaccustomed to seeing statues bearing traffic cones, this is a very typical student prank. The only slightly unusual thing is that they've put two traffic cones on this statue of David Hume. Such a world-renowned philosopher and leading thinker of the Scottish Englightenment surely deserves better treatment!

Better that than tagging with spraypaint!

true nerissa...you don't see much of that around here, not in the city centre anyway.

aside from traffic cones, not much happens to our statues and monuments thankfully. there is a statue in glasgow of donald dewar (former scottish first minister) which keeps getting its glasses broken off.

Interesting- I haven't noticed our statues being dressed in traffic accessories. I will keep a look out!
