That’s quite an odd looking piece of sculpture, isn’t it? I can’t find a plaque that would explain it’s purpose or even what it’s supposed to be.

    When I posted a picture of this sculpture some time ago a geology student helpfully commented that it is known by all and sundry as the stone vagina.
