Butcher Row, Beverley

Here's another item on Beverley's Town Trail [ 1 ]. This time it's a representation of an ox carcass in eight feet of two inch thick steel plate. The man responsible for this is Chris Wormald who says he was inspired by Rembrandt's slaughterhouse painting [ 2 ]. It's meant to represent the medieval Beverley Butchers Guild. Needless to say comments in the local paper were less than impressed with this rusting legacy.
