This building has 16 carved heads on it. The Top Hat over the main entrance is the most famous one and gives it name to the building. It was built for Francis "Tanky" Smith who was Leicester's first private detective and had a reputation for being a master of disguise. The heads each represent one of his disguises. He is thought to have been one of the inspirations for Sherlock Holmes.
Sculpture at Watermead Country Park, Thurmaston, Leicestershire.
There is a group of these sculptures near to Thurmaston Lock. They are intended to represent the people and animals that might have lived in the area during prehistoric times. Other sculptures from the group are likely to feature in my Project 365 series as the year progresses.
If anyone saw me taking this photograph, they would think that I was mad. I took it in the pouring rain. It had been raining all day. When I had chances to take a photograph, I put it off in the hope that the rain would ease later. It did not. I took this photograph in failing light at the end of the day as I did not think that there was going to be a better chance today.

I am also attempting to complete the Dogwood 52 Week Challenge this year. The subject for this week was a "Faceless Portrait" which is why I cam to take this photograph. I have used a different edit of it as my entry for this week.
I bought these little chaps for a photograph that I was taking for the Dogwood 52 Week Challenge. I decided to use them for Project 365 as well. I should have tidied up the loose fibres before I took the photograph really but I am quite pleased with it.
