Look UP Look DOWN - Montreal

Look Up, Look Down challenge hosted by Travel With Intent.


September 2014 - Montreal Quebec
These bronze statues were seen in the square across from the Notre Dame Basilica (Place D'Armes). 


Here is what I found online:
A pair of 7' high bronze sculptures called The English Pug and the French Poodle have recently been installed at the Place d’Armes in Montréal, Québec. The sculptures were created by Montreal artist Marc-André J. Fortier and were erected in 2013.






I suspect this is meant to be a tongue in cheek presentation of the English/French cultures in Montreal.  The clown noses depict what a silly preoccupation residents have about language.
