"The smallest piece of permanent art in London is at the junction of Philpot Lane and Eastcheap and displays two mice fighting over a piece of cheese. This sculpture remembers the story of two workmen working on the building's construction who fought over a lost piece of cheese, which led to the death of one of the men after falling from the structure."

The commanding architecture at the heart of London's busiest financial district certainly leaves a lasting impression.
