Every business has its assets, yet none are quite like those of company Prominent Assets, from Titty Hill (yes, both company and place exist – the Diary checked), Sussex.
The asset? “An eye-catching three-dimensional sculpture of a stunning model leaning through a window frame”, known as The Girl from Amazonia. The sculptures are certainly eye-catching – they are of the top half of a naked Brazilian – but the Diary cannot agree that the model in question is stunning. In fact, she looks positively frightening.
The figures are available to buy in a variety of colours (the most hideous of which is the piebald check above), or you can dress them in a real bikini top, sunglasses and jewellery. Nice.
According to managing director Stephen Saunders – who accepts that many will see the sculptures as politically incorrect – he wanted to create something that really makes you “turn and look”. Indeed. It certainly made the Diary turn and look – for the nearest bucket to throw up in.
