Every Picture Has A Story: ‘Time Flies’ at Aston University

From My Photo Album: Every Picture Has A Story

The sculpture positioned outside Aston University Library is called Inside ‘Tempus-Fugit’ (Time Flies) and represents the theory that inside every ageing man’s mind there lives a nine-year old boy. If you walk up to the sculpture and peer inside the head you can see a small metal figure of a child. This unique piece was created by emerging sculptor Ray Lonsdale, a self-employed steel fabricator.

(Thanks to Tim Hooton, Jean Hasson, Annette Rubery for helping me locate the information about the sculpture)
