Babli, where do you find these things? I thought all the statues were fantastic, if I had to choose a favourite it might be the one of rebel and policemen.

These are all quite interesting statues and sculptures. I like the water faucet that isn't attached to anything and the hippo hanging from the air. Both very clever, Actually I think they are all rather clever. Thanks for sharing.
