The Tortoise & The Hare

These sculptures are by Nancy Schön, who also sculpted the Make Way For Ducklings statues in the Public Gardens. These guys are next to the fountain in Copley Square - just near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. They were unveiled on the 100th anniversary of the Marathon, in 1996.

I posted the Ducklings family for Xmas on my blog and I am glad to see on yours this time the other sculpture with the Tortoise and the hare. There are both really nice and funny.
