A Dirty Knight In Edinburgh

While visiting Edinburgh Castle Mrs J snapped some photos of this rather interesting statue which adorns the outside of the War Memorial. To my rather immature mind, the statue seems to show a Knight being orally pleasured by a rather small child! I doubt this interpretation was the artisan's original intent however, but it is not clear exactly what the statue is designed to show. If you have any thoughts, please share them in the comments section.

These pictures have also featured on Andrew May's Forteana Blog, and in Fortean Times (Issue 288).
