These sculptures are amazing, simple, but very effective. Its small structure like these that not only add beauty to a city, but they also tell something of a story.

This beautiful sculpture is done as if someone was actually going to dive in the water, there are other sculptures that depict people sitting and standing at the water's edge, they are well made and fascinating to look at.
