A giant sculpture by controversial artist Damien Hirst has arrived in Norwich.

The 20 foot creation is called Hymn. It has been loaned free of charge to the Norwich University of the Arts where it will be placed outside for the next few months.

I think it will be real talking point over the next few months whilst it's ion Norwich, previously it's been to Monaco, it's been to Dublin, it's been to Doha, it's been to Naples and so I think Norwich is in good company but I think it will be a real talking point. I think people will come here to see it and have a real conversation about anatomy about art, is it art about its size, about its scale, the colour and what it does in this particular location.
