Statue banks Soane Lyon

Strolling along the river bank in Lyon presents you with lots of options.  Which river?  Rhone or Saone.  Which bank? Thankfully there are lots of bridges enabling you to switch sides of your chosen river at will.  Both rivers are dotted with fine examples of modern sculpture.  I was particularly taken with this of one man carrying another.  It is curiously moving, as you look more closely you realise that the two figures are the same man, or identical twins.  The statue is the work of a Scandinavian duo called Elmgreen and Dragset.

To see what else we got up to in Lyon check out my Street Art in Lyon and Confluence Museum posts.

It would make me very happy if you were to nominate me for one of these awards:
