There are several nice sculptures dotted around Ipswich. The recent pig sculptures were excellent. Not sure about this one though. Thought provoking it might be, but not pleasing on the eye for me

A huge pint less question mark on its side. Dont get your hopes up. If art is supposed to challenge and ask questions, this artwork forgot what the question was, and the question mark got so tired hanging around for the question to be asked, that it fainted!

I don't know what the purpose is, but to me it signifies "asking why", but from a different angle. Being by the university it makes some sense. In any case, it is a nice thing to see and makes a great back-drop for group photographs.

Came across this Sculpture while looking for the pigs gone wild Sculpture's in ipswich, i think its made of marble, its seats in the maria area of ipswich and is accessible to everyone. Not sure what is all about, but it looks fantastic, If your in the area , go take a look.

Situated outside of the uni this statue is eye catching. However I'm not sure what it actually represents or why it's there. Great for a photo though on a sunny day with the waterfront in the background.

I rathe like statement art juxtaposed against the modernistic UCS building. Grab a coffee from any one of the nearby excellent cafés and ponder

Not really sure how this is a thing to 'do' in Ipswich but nevertheless we visited the question mark in irony but there was nothing ironic about the fun we had. Embrace this mass of useless marble!

This 'Thing' called the question mark sculpture totally baffles me, after all this time since it was put there I still don't know what it means or the point of it. Why??? Another waste of money this stupid council has thought up of - could of been better spent on more public toilets in the town or a walk-way or... More
