Snap animal statues on holiday


On my first evening in Budapest I saw the statue of the girl and dog out of the window of the tram and thought it would be nice if I could find a snap set of animal statues - and there were plenty.

I don't know the story of any of them.  All I know is that the horses are part of a very triumphal arch that reminded me of the statues in Vienna, the ram head was part of a heraldic piece near the Presidential residence, the dog and girl are beside the river and the rabbit is in a nice quiet park near a University and lots of cafes.

You have quite a collection of "street animals"! That top one reminds me of one I've seen somewhere too.

A good lot to add to your collection. I like the person with the dog. It looks very realistic.

Interesting photos, I like collecting a set of similar to help remember a holiday or visit.

Sweet SNAP collection. I often wonder the back story to many of the statues I see. I like the rabbit & yes I think prefer statue rabbits in the garden to live chewing bunnies!

The top one is similar to the one atop of the Brandenburg gate in Berlin. I do like the one with the dog!

Nice set; it would be interesting to know the story behind them. I like the way girl with the dog is seated on the step..

Sorry I had to dash yesterday - routine all round the bend at the mo. I echo others that the dog and owner is a fave!
