    The Plunge
    I see it more like “The Dump”.
    Plumb bobs feel gravity, are prone to the vertical and when working are hanged.
    The big red PB resting and attached to a grey cylindrical support (?) is in not in a characteristic attitude; not even inserted on the ground, as it happens when they are “plunged” to mark a plumbed center.
    Never the less, as a PBs collector, I’ll be happy to visit it and salute the artist.
