He looks regal and kingly! I like the city hall, too, with the clock. Very well done, Jose!

A great blue sky as background of a royal composition. The statue is quite modern but still solemn, the City Hall building is really elegant.

I like Brattcat's comment. This statue does look like someone legendsry! I like the modern style, it seems to go very nicely with the city hall.

He looks like the kings they have in nativity scenes.

Beautiful sculpture, I liked a lot the tower bell detail in this building.
Also loved the picture header!

I would have thought the city building was more modern from the look of it.
