The Wizard Of Whirlaw

I first came across this unusual object after seeing a photograph of it on the internet and I decided to go and have a look. It is high up on the moors, made of stone and about 10 feet high. It looks like something from 'Lord of the Rings, maybe a wizard, half-moon or even a banana! It is accompanied by a smaller version of itself on the other side and also a couple of toadstools. It is next to a stile and my friend and I managed to incorporate it into a walk we did.

I have since found out (01/03/2016) that the sculpture is based on a fictional character made famous by local author William Holt.
