Reclining goddess or Slag Alice?

Well, to be fair, the Banks Mining Group haven’t actually said it’s a reclining goddess (perhaps afraid of offending the Christian and conservative lobby in the area with reference to existing ‘pagan’ reclining goddesses elsewhere) but surely that’s where the inspiration came from. “But here’s a double dose of generosity from The Banks Group and the aptly named Blagdon Estate who are not only favouring the locals by filling the hole with water but are ALSO being kind enough to sort of sculpt their spoil heaps into the world’s biggest figure”.

Nah... pull the other one; this is slag in every sense of the word – and a grimacing squashed one at that. Far better to return it to the earth, cover it over and hope no-one in the future notices that this bit of the landscape was ever dug or ‘sculptured’.
