The massive sculpture of a man in a walking pose looks like it is about to cross the road and is a depiction of the hectic lives of modern times. It makes for a good photo spot.

Walked past this big statue. The statue is not that special, but if you happen to walk past there, still a funny thing to see. :) There are some benches too, so you can sit down if you feel like it
