Kate Stevenson, outpatients physio team leader, said: "The new plinths
are ideal for bariatric patients as they are that bit wider and sturdier than the standard plinth
, which the Friends donated last year.
Simply re-fit the plinth
into its existing position.
Cause of the latest dispute is the discovery of the hair-line cracking on the replaced plinths
Iron: man sinks up to his knees in the ground, but has a dialogue with Queen Victoria who surmounts a plinth
has recently been occupied by temporary exhibits including Mark Wallinger's Ecce Homo and the current Regardless Of History by Bill Woodrow.
For example, the plinths
must be poured to within one-sixteenth of an inch - about the width of a penny - of specification.
In consideration of the critical nature of this finding, we recommend the immediate repair of the said plinths
to improve the existing condition of our track system.
So is there support now for UVF and UDA plinths
alongside the dead of the Somme?
The artist, famous as the creator of The Angel of the North, is seeking 2,400 people - including 103 from the North East - to spend an hour each on a plinth
in London's Trafalgar Square.
At first, the whole design seems very simple: big plinth
with metal boxes on top penetrated by portico, a bold, monumental, almost classical composition needed to bring order to the campus.
Its diminutive scale in relation to the plinth
, and the figure's withdrawn body language, contrast with the monumentality of the square's permanent fixtures.
Both organisations said the plinths
, with inscriptions dedicated to the "glorious memory" of the UDA, UVF and Red Hand Commando, were not part of the original plans for the pounds 74,000 project.
