Oh for goodness sakes people can you leave the friggin Phone Girl statue alone. One of Shanghai’s most well known statues has been damaged once again. Yesterday morning people were greeted by the sad and sorry sight of the “call girl” lying on her side and broken in two, next to the telephone stand. The statue was sculpted by He Yong in 1996 but has been cursed with bad luck ever since. In 1998 it was pulled down by would-be thieves and then in 2000 it was nicked by two junk collectors. It took four years for the police to finally catch the thieves who are both serving 12 year jail sentences. In 2006 the phone was stolen.
