The Sculpture in Shanghai

Recently, a sculpture placed on the banks of the Huangpu River in Shanghai was taken to task for its uncanny resemblance to a London landmark, "Timepiece." The artist of "Timepiece" has accused the creator of the Shanghai installation of stealing her design.

The sculpture in Shanghai, which credits no artist and gives no information about its production, does seem identical to the work in London, created by British artist Wendy Taylor. Shanghai is scrupulous about intellectual property protection, said the local government, adding that the sculpture will be removed if plagiarism is confirmed.
