Chesterfield locals 'screaming' over council's Diana tribute

Princess Diana

After sharing the snaps on Facebook, Chesterfield Borough Council was met with a number of comments that were. well, not very nice!

The memorial, which is on display outside Chesterfield's Market Hall in Derbyshire, was created as part of the town's "well dressing" celebrations, an annual custom in the county, which involves making pictures using only natural materials.

The tribute, made by volunteers to mark the 20-year anniversary of Diana's death, was unveiled at a special ceremony in the town's market place.

The reaction on Twitter hasn't been much kinder, with some netizens claiming it looks like a character from a horror movie.

"I don't remember Diana having a stroke?" asked one Facebook commenter, Matt Burridge.

A heartfelt tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales is being mocked online with some calling the creation "absolutely horrendous". "Done something nice for Chesterfield and for Diana", while JF Andrew said: "I'm sure a lot of time went into this. but that is absolutely horrific!"

Chito Gascon, the head of Commission on Human Rights , said Congress was trying to force him to resign. Human rights advocates hope senators will restore the agency's current budget.

"All art is meant to be a talking point", he added, "and that certainly seems to be the case with this year's design".

"The well dressing is created to attract visitors to the area and if the publicity encourages more people to come and experience our historic market town and local shops then that can only be good for Chesterfield".

The design has been produced using a variety of materials including carnations, chrysanthemums, camomile flowers, cow parsley, leaves, grass seeds, rowan berries and egg shell.

But nothing quite matches this "well dressing" portrait made by volunteers in Chesterfield, England.

Chesterfield Borough Council has hit back, however, saying the tribute was intended as a "talking point". "Well done for the memorial to a wonderful lady", Emma Jayne said.

"I am CRYING with laughter here", tweeted one.
