Meet Iron:Man – the statue by sculptor Antony Gormley that sticks in the ground at its shins.But there is a secret below the paving in the centre of Birmingham – Iron:Man has feet.His metal toes, which contribute to the piece’s six-tonne heft, have been unearthed because he is on the move; making way for an expansion of the city’s tram network.Iron:Man – to return to public display, the council says, after a period in storage – went up in 1993, representing Birmingham’s industrial heritage.
