A statue of a nude man by Antony Gormley (who sculpted the Angel of the North) was placed on the roof of Blackwell’s Art and Poster shop, on the corner of Broad and Turl Streets, at 9.30am on Sunday 15 February 2009.

The 7-foot-tall statue is made of iron and weighs half a tonne, and is part of Gormley’s “Another Time II” series of figures. An anonymous benefactor provided the funds for Exeter College to secure the sculpture.
