Well known landmark

Located on the pedestrian walkway of 8th Ave., this is a popular downtown spot for walking, people watching, browsing/shopping and grabbing a quick bite or just relaxing.

Always brings a smile to my face when I pass this sculpture. It's certainly worth passing by when you're next in Calgary.

I walk by them every morning. They bring a bit of light into my life. Such personalities! Wish all business was this friendly.

I was walking in the downtown early recently, and spotted this sculpture. There weren't a lot people around, and it felt good see these two gentlemen talking. The sculpture animates the pedestrian mall during the day when it's busy, but also warms things up when the mall is empty. Glad it's there!

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.
