Damien hirst's verity sculpture erected

Damien hirst's 66 ft bronze sculpture 'verity' has been erected at the seaside town of ilfracombe, UK.
the statue depicts a naked pregnant woman with half of her body exposing ligaments and viscera while holding aloft a sword and
standing on a base of legal books. the piece - with 'verity' meaning 'truth' in italian - represents a 'modern allegory of truth and justice'
and references hirst's earlier bronze artwork 'virgin mother' from 2005.

'verity' was made in over forty individual castings with sand moulds at pangolin editions foundry in gloucestershire.
the frame was made in a single piece of stainless steel. the sword and upper arm is a single piece of glass fibre reinforced polymer
 and the entire piece underwent significant windtunnel testing in order to ensure it was capable of withstanding the forces  of high winds and sea spray.

The figure, to be on loan to the town for 20 years, has caused a controversial stir amongst a number of locals who sent in hundreds
of letters of objection or of support, however the north devon council approved of its construction earlier in the year which
