Iron: Man

Anthony Gormley's controversial statue 'Iron: Man' stands at the lower end of Victoria Square, near Pinfold Street.

It was a gift to the city by the Trustee Savings Bank, in March 1993.

Cast at Firth Rixon Castings in Willenhall, it represents the traditional skills of Birmingham and the Black Country.
