Art lovers proudly show off statue – but mum spots something rather rude

A 'unfortunate' statue of a imp was proudly unveiled by art lovers – but all people could talk about was it's rather cheekily positioned leg.

Up to 30 of the sculptures – dubbed the Lincoln Imp Trail – are set to flood the historic city from July with people given a sneak peak of the hardy chap, sitting down on a stool.

But how it's leg is hanging set tongues wagging, with one social media user saying the statue is 'hung like and elephant' and another pleading 'please don't paint it pink'.

The full-sized sculpture, designed by Wild in Art, will be painted and put around the city this summer from July 4 , report Lincolnshire Live.

The designs have been created by local and national artist and designs for the statues are still in the planning stage.

The statue features the imp sitting cross-legged with one of its legs hanging down.

But, many people have claimed that it looks more like a penis – and a rather large one at that.

A mum called Lorraine wrote on Twitter: “Every couple of years in Lincoln we like to celebrate our beautiful county. So far we’ve had painted Barons, painted knights and now it’ll be painted Imps… I don’t know where to start with this..!”

That prompted a wave of responses one person joked on the social media that the statue was “Hung like an imp."

“Don’t know why he is looking so miserable with that between his legs,” laughed another.

Another person wrote: “Hung like an elephant comes to mind.”

“Just don’t paint it pink,” said one person, while another added: “That’s an unfortunate placement.”

After hearing about the comments, a Wild in Art spokesperson said: “The mischievous response on social media is in the spirit of the imp and shows that people are looking forward to this event.

“Once decorated the sculptures, which are based on Lincoln’s iconic imp will make a vibrant, colourful and fun art trail celebrating the city.”

Lincoln BIG, has teamed-up with Wild in Art, The EBP and St Barnabas Hospice for the rail later this year.

As well as the 30 statues, 60 half-sized Imps will be on show as part of an education trail being run by the EBP.

There will also be five community imps in place as well.

Lincoln BIG hopes that the event will be a similar success to previous years.

A Lincoln BIG spokesperson said: “We are working towards producing our best Trail to date and we are looking forward to seeing our Imp characters taking over the city this summer.”

The event will help to raise money for St Barnabas Hospice and the Lincoln Creates Fund.

Funds will be generated from businesses sponsoring the designs and then, as has been the case in recent years, they will then have a chance to buy it outright at an auction on October 1, Lincolnshire Day, which will be held when the trail has ended.
