Diamond Jubilee - Celebration?

Their Majesties in giant terra cotta?  To celebrate her Diamond Jubilee (60 years)!
Can't say they stooped to the latest trend in photoshopping (ok, in this case sculpture-shopping) for vanities sake.

No, not a bit.  Not even a happy face.

Too bad.  When can you, if not for a celebration of your own longevity and highly regarded service to your country?

"captured" via NBC's Today Show     

When broadcasting her report on this mornings Today Show (accomplished, athletic & cute as a buttonNatalie Morales ad-libbed, "....they are not good looking, I'll tell you that..... absolutely bizzare!"

Terra cotta BUSTS of Their Majesties - maybe from this angle they are smiling, a bit.

Morales described the artistic endeavor as taking teams of potters 2 months to build the 11 foot tall terra cotta tubs weighing 1000 pounds each.  And she questioned, "The Worlds largest Chia Pet?"

Can we imagine together how much money must have been raised through the The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust to have the committee decide that this was a "bang on" monument?  (bang on, Chiefly British Slang terrific; marvelous; just right:That hat is absolutely bang on.)  

I searched for a photo of the garden heads from the back.  From there I bet they are smashing, bang-up, bully, corking, cracking and dandy!

Cheers!  Linda
