'Avarice' Edith Downing bronze

‘Avarice’ by Edith Elizabeth Downing (1867 -1931) bronze, lifesize.

As you mount the south-west staircase, the figure of Avarice looms above you, draws level with you as you climb, and when you reach the first floor it is visible from above. However, it would be good one day to approach it on the level, when the claw-like hand would become huge as you drew close.
