Modern Art Bradford

I am not a great lover of modern art as shown in the photograph below. It is situated outside the offices of the travel agents, Thomas Cook, in Bradford. I had no idea what it meant to portray until I read up about it.

It is called Questor and symbolises the cultural progress and adventurous nature of Bradford.
The sculpture weighs 1.25 tonnes and stands 15 feet (6 metres) high and was unveiled on 3rd June 1998
The sculptor is Edinburgh born Keith McCarter , who studied at the Edinburgh College of Art. He made many visits to Bradford over a 10 year period before he created Questor as a monument to Bradford’s future.
