Stephen's Avenue is a delightful pedestrian walk with flowers, interesting buildings, etc along the way, but it's always special when you come across an interesting art display as well. These statues certainly have their own story to tell.

We walked past these statues several times while we stayed in Calgary & although we took a photo of them didn't really pay much attention, the Calgary skyline is much more interesting but perhaps I should have paid more attention.
