With regard to the statue of Dame Lois Browne Evans, it has always been a source of great disappointment to me that the sculptor failed to capture what was one of her most endearing characteristics — namely her habit of always wearing her wig tilted a little bit to one side in a slightly rakish, not to say jaunty, angle. Each time I saw her picture, I had a private chortle. Why did the sculptor not take the trouble to research this small but important detail? Desmond Fountain would never have made this mistake, and would have made a much better job of this sculpture — why was he not invited to do so?
