I was standing under the famous statue of Eros, the Greek God of love, in Piccadilly Circus two weeks ago waiting for a relative. The place is swarming with tourists who gather in large circles around pubescent boys jumping over each other while others photograph Eros from all sides.
I turned my gaze upwards to look at the statue since I’ve never actually stood there to admire it. Only after a few seconds of staring at it did I realise that poor Eros’s bow is badly twisted! And the string of the bow, which you can’t see very well because I took this picture on my phone, dangles limply on the side. I don’t know who maintains the statue but can Eros please have his bow fixed?
