Could this be the first ever statue with blue eyes? Unfortunately not. This is the wonderful and talented Statue Man of Melbourne City. And there wasn’t a pigeon within cooee. This clever fellow stands motionless on a pedestal until some kind soul drop a few dollars into the hat at his feet, or to change positions. He dipped his hat at me just after I popped a few gold coloured coins into the kitty. (Melbourne, Victoria, Australia).
