Work is due to take place today to repair one of Somerset's most popular landmarks.
The 40-foot high Willow Man went up beside the M5 in 2000, though it had to be rebuilt after a fire the following year.
The artist, Serena de la Hey, will begin mending the statue's leg this morning and will inspect the structure with a view to further repairs next year.
Putting the 'moo' in commuting? The M5 was blocked in both directions in Gloucestershire last night - because a wandering cow had brought it to a standstill.
As baffled commuters waited in their cars (no doubt beeping their horns), Gloucestershire Road Police rushed out to save the day before the troublesome rambler could milk the situation any longer.
Finally, they tweeted the happy news that the cow had been reunited with its farmer - and the road could get moo-ving once more.
The M5 is blocked in both directions between J13 (Stroud) and J14 (Thornbury) after reports of an accident and animals on the road.
Highways England say a cow was on the carriageway, police are on the scene.

A mother onboard the coach which overturned on the M5 motorway has described how she prayed "please don't let me die".
Sharlodane Beckles from West Bromwich has been left with a broken neck and an horrific head wound which needed 21 stitches.
She was travelling with her toddler and said all she could think was she didn't want to leave him.
The coach which overturned on the M5 in Gloucestershire was carrying 53 adults and children on a day trip to Weston-Super-Mare. The trip had been arranged by the charity Action For Children and the passengers were from Dudley in the West Midlands.
The coach is operated by Stourbridge-based Prospect Coaches.
