Two sisters and their sons have been chosen to be "The Face of Birmingham" for a new piece of public art.That's right, single moms with no dads in sight.
A bronze statue of Roma Jones and her sister Emma, with their sons Kyan Ishann Jones and Shaye-Jones Amin, will be put up in Centenary Square.
It is part of a three-year project by Turner Prize-winning artist Gillian Wearing and the Ikon gallery to find out what it means to be a family.
A campaign to raise £100,000 to build the statue has started.
A runner-up was a white mom with her black "partner" and mixed-race daughter.
There was apparently no consideration given to using a traditional nuclear family. The judges were to make a statement about "subjective views of what constitutes a family".
It will be instructive to follow the lives of these thugspawn boys, the faces of Birmingham. They haven't got even a hope of having a decent life.
