A block on the landscape?

Is this new addition to a famous stretch of the Northumberland coast a bit of fun and a nice feature or does it detract from the landscape? Is it grafitti, art or both?

When our photographer Jane Coltman took a stroll along Bamburgh beach today, she was surprised by a new addition to the vista, but what do you think?

The tanks-stoppers re-imagined as a pair of dice have been there for several years, but the two Rubik's cubes, which are brighter and have bolder colours, are relatively new.

Are they appropriate on a stretch of coastline which is an area of outstanding natural beauty and sitting near to one of the county's most historic castles?

Or does it not matter at all as they are an interesting and fun idea that will provide amusement to passers-by?
