This cast bronze statue situated on Melbourne's City Square names " Larry La Trobe " created by Pamela Irving to represent the relationship with Melbourne, Australia and the state of Victoria. Charles La Trobe was the first Lieutenant Governor of the state of Victoria.
And actually, this is the second statue was reinstalled officially unveiled on 16 September 1996 by Melbourne Lord Mayor, Councillor Ivan Deveson.
Pamela Irving created this statue based on her own dog, Lucy, the statue is not representative of any particular breed but has been crafted to generate a sense of Australian larrikinism in the viewer. For me, Larry look like " jack russell terrier "
