Damien Hirst has brought public art to a new low. When you have an attention-seeking artist and an ambitious town, you end up with this monstrosity (controversial statue, Verity, on Ilfracombe seafront) by Jonathan Jones. Subjects on Thought for the Day last week: war memorials, Felix Baumgartner, Malala Yousafzai, the joys of taxation and, with Ilfracombe in the news, the spiritual lessons of Damien Hirst. Hirst has just presented the town with a 65ft sculpture, a variant on the flayed pregnant girls series he began in 2006, when he parked the original Virgin Mother in the courtyard of the Royal Academy. By dint of adding Old Bailey-style accessories to this Virgin, whose pose also references Degas's Little Dancer, he has transformed the sculpture, never much of a critical hit, into an allegory for truth and justice called Verity. Some people, as Hindu Akhandadhi Das said in his Thought for the Day, do not like it. But other people do. Either way, as Das noted, the sculpture is controversial and "thought ...

I am all in favour of public art and admire Anthony Gormley's sculpture, for instance, but I do think that the English are peculiarly bad at discerning good from bad art. My friend Bruce calls the English 'evisuate', meaning bad at seeing and I have to agree (although the English do produce some extremely good artists who usually succeed abroad). I cannot imagine such a ghastly sculpture in any European or American public place so how come we English put such a third rate artist such as Hirst on such a pedestal? Do have a look at this piece (particularly i ...
