The Yorkville Business Man (Che Fa?) 1980

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The sculptor William McElcheran (Canadian) is populating the urban landscape with these business men. I think these are great, because he depicts them in very funny and satyrical way. In the other hand is his briefcase, once there was a pigeon on this hand, when I walked by, but no camera in my hand.

One of my favorites of his statues is a businessman on top of a horse, (near University) making fun of all the generals in the world and their big egos.

F-a-n-t-a-s-t-ic! Really different and clever, but he looks as if he should have had a cake in his hand! :-))

Oh! but that's one of William McElcheran's fat businessmen! Aren't they fabulous!!!This is a wonderful composition and angle with super reflections and details - I love the naive painting in the window - great shot, Thomas!

Monika, I am suprised you know the name. He has few statues in the city. One of my favorites is a businessman on top of a horse, making fun of all the generals in the world and their big egos.

Lesley, in the other hand is briefcase, once there was a pigeon on this hand, when I walked by, but no camera in my hand.

Nancy, Wijarn, Minu, Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comments and likes. The cudos goes to W. McElcheran for creating such unusual sculptures. There is one sculpture of Peter the Great in Darja gallery, which has similar sense of humor, so missing in public places.
