Pavement jewellery

I was walking down Cowley Road in Oxford the other day (as I do pretty frequently these days - I work just off it) and happened to look down as I was about to tread on this:

Pavement 'jewellery' #cowleyroad #feminist #hellyeah

Turns out that this is something called 'pavement jewellery', and was part of a redevelopment of the area in 2005. It was an art installation by Fusion Arts highlighting the history of the area. Originally there were 58 of these bronze ingots - I'm not sure how many are left now. I found an entire album of them on Flickr. They come in pairs, with a shared connection. This one apparently relates to a women's centre that used to be near the plain.

These are amazing! I love all of them, and I really embrace the street art concept.
