That Sneaky Tortoise

I've always been intrigued with this sculpture in Copley Square of Boston, Massachusetts. It's a highly attractive bronze art piece consisting of Aesop's Fable - The Tortoise and the Hare.

The sculpture was commissioned to commemorate the Boston Marathon, it's finish line not to far from this location on Boylston Street.

The two animals are popular for photo shoots. Almost everyone in the square has to have a photo shot with or on top of both of them. Copley Square is an amazing place to photograph as there are a number of significant architectural designs in a small space.

I've heard of the Boston Marathon of course, but this is new. What a great idea.

Love the Hare, looks over-weight with breathing problems.

It Marilyn's picture from Aesop the hare is lying down. A pleasure to see a public square with sculptures I can relate to.
