Police are searching for someone who walked into a St Ives gallery in broad daylight and stole a sculpture.

The bronze piece called 'Kaimos Creature' (2007) was taken from Porthminster gallery on the morning of Friday 9th August. 

It is said to be worth around £3,400.

Anyone who saw what happened, or who has been offered the art for sale is being asked to call officers.

PC Jon Dash, based at Penzance, said: "This sculpture was taken in broad daylight and the person would have had to walk it though the street to waiting transport. They would have had to be fairly strong to carry the sculpture on their own."
 
Police would also like to hear from anyone who may have been offered the sculpture for sale, including antique shops, galleries and metal dealers. It is made of bronze and is 25cms tall and 64cms long.
 
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101, quoting crime reference AI/13/564.
