That's such a good composition, juxtaposing the natural beauty against the skyscrapers. Imposing statue - what a high plinth they gave him.

It looks fantastic among the plants and even the tall buildings.

When I'm at the Common, I always like to take a stroll by this one. And like you have it here--- looks so good with the backdrop of buildings.
