Lurking Policeman



I walk past this gateway almost every day and every time this life size model of a US highway patrol man catches me out. I glimpse a person just inside the gate and prepare for a brief conversation as one does when passing in a small country town. I haven't said bonjour to the policeman yet, but I bet some passerby has. The house belongs to a local brocanteur (second-hand) and antiques dealer and the policeman is a recent addition to the collection. I've no idea how much they want for it, but presumably it's cheap as CHiPs.

  2. A neighbour in France had the figure of a monk just inside his gate....he had picked it up from somewhere and said he put it there to give people a fright. He even gave it a shelter for winter.

    1. I suspect the motivation is the same here.
