A fun statue, Ayush, I like the cobbles pattern.
Ayush Basu: Yes, rather neat, isn't it, Frank?

Interesting to see cobbles in a place that seems otherwise designed for bicycling, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: A rigorous way to verify how rigidly everything on the bike is bolted together, Ray.
A joyful man Ayush! Fine capture.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Richard, the only thing that would make this complete would be a pint of beer in his hand.
He certainly looks like he is enjoying himself.
Ayush Basu: Looking forward to a rollicking good time this weekend, I suppose.

He is happy to watch the world passing by Ayush
Ayush Basu: Not a care in the world, Chris.

he looks like he's singing... perhaps busking on the street corner in an alternate universe?
Ayush Basu: Well this jolly fellow certainly caught my eye, Elaine.

He's an odd one, Ayush
Ayush Basu: Quite different from the more common statues of statesmen with extended, pointing hands or soldiers mounted on horses, Lisl.
What a delightful creation this is!
Ayush Basu: I agree, Mary. Thank you
I love these statues dotted about the place.
Ayush Basu: Some of them were rather comical, Brian. And they have interesting stories behind them, perhaps.

Joli personnage.Il rit en voyant les gens passer.
A light hearted addition to the street ayush
Ayush Basu: Certainly worth standing by for a moment or five, to make a picture, Janet.
He looks a jolly chap Ayush, like an Irish leprechaun on holiday.
Ayush Basu: A sharp observation, Chad. Thank you
You couldn't help smiling if you saw him I would think
Ayush Basu: Yes actually, Bill. Amusing find.

Ayush Basu: He was having a good laugh at what I had to say, Louis grin

This is a great statue.. I think that we should visit Venlo one day...Have a great weekend.
Ayush Basu: I sure had a good weekend, Astrid, thank you very much. I came across a lot more statues in various places and am sure there are stories pertaining to Dutch traditions.

All looks very clean and tidy. The little statue has a impish grin to him.
Ayush Basu: Quite so, Alan. Thank you
HA! I love it, Ayush! Leave it to the Dutch! smile
Ayush Basu: I have a few more shots to post sporadically in the coming days, Ginnie.
