Louis: Yes, they seem to be punching holes into each other.
How unusual!
Louis: Yip, it is art, Elizabeth

How bizarre is this! And they are even colour-co-ordinated with the street sign too..
Louis: An artist's idea of boxing, Chris.
I like how the bike gives scale to the boxers, Louis, because those street signs are also HUGE.
Louis: That bike is parked where the cyclist is still left with some distance to walk. But it helped with the pic

It looks almost rude.
Louis: Well, one gets all types of boxers, gutteridge.
I am glad you have the bike in the picture for scale, Louis. And by the look of that top traffic sign, it might help if the drivers wear glasses, man alive are they shortsighted???
Louis: Maybe it is meant for bus drivers, Astrid.
They would both be disqualified for low punches
Louis: Luckily, there is no referee around - so they will continue putting holes in each other.

Louis: Yes, I think that could hurt, Lisl.
Most unusual, I guess it's supposed to say something but I'm not sure what.
Louis: Maybe "you can get hurt from boxing" smile
the bike is cool Louis... i can't say the same about the sculpture... to each their own tastes....petersmile
Louis: It is somewhat strange - two pugilists making holes in each other. But the artist got paid, nonetheless smile
C'est original.
Louis: C'est vrai, Martine
Very whimsical...
Louis: Somewhat droll, yes Larry.
