I realize that this sculpture...must have been on the pricey side....But that being said, it just adds to the culture of the city.....the wild horses gets little too much after while

When ever I walk past this it always makes me smile! It just seems like such a friendly piece, with two men obviously in deep conversation.

These two have been wrapped up in a conversation for many months. In the summer, they gather dust and in the winter it is snow.

We were walking in the evening in downtown, when I was surprised to realize that these two fellows in an animated chat were in fact a sculpture. Calgary downton has several surprises like that in the streets. Most interesting.

I love all the sculptures around Calgary. I call these two "friends". They remind me of how friendly Calgarians are.

One of my first faves when moving to Calgary back in the 1990s. I love a piece that seems to show activity or action and this one screams it.

Interesting to some, these statues evoke a feeling of past business practices when people talked face to face.
