Look Who Moved Into the Neighborhood

photos 086

I was walking down Main street on my way to choir practice, and came upon an interesting sight next to Bank of America.  Look familiar?  When I first saw it my eyes bugged out.

photos 082It’s a new statue on display at this intersection in Downtown Mesa.  Seems to be slightly based on that old painting of the farmer and his wife, I forget the title.  Only it’s a slightly larger rendering.  Notice the normal sized people standing by their luggage, that’s just how humongous this statue is.  You can see some of the equipment it took to set it up.

photos 084Here’s the suitcase, it’s taller than me.  And my goodness, they’ve certainly traveled to a lot of exotic places.

photos 087Of course, to do all that traveling and moving they’d have to have decent footwear, right?  These clunkers are big enough to sit on.

photos 083Let’s us not forget to give credit and thanks for the artist responsible for this larger than life addition the the Downtown scenery.  Keep up the good work.
