Larry and the two men




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 "

Larry looks friendly enough. Not sure about his two buddies though.

Mo, yes, I got court in this photo !!!!
They saw me but I still kept pretending. " It's just a shot of the dog sculpture, not you guys "
My rule is " Don't get court even got court, Keep pretending, I am a tourist " ( I'm Asian anyway, I can do it ! )
