The zig zagging that started with the last post continued all the way until I reached the Gentlemen Statues at the AMA Plaza.
"The Gentlemen" sculpture has been at its current location at the AMA Plaza (formerly known as IBM Plaza), since March of 2015. Prior to that it was located at the Langham Hotel. The sculpture was designed and built by Taiwanese sculptor Ju Ming. It depicts a group of businessmen traveling to work. It is a minimalist design that highlights just the basics of these ordinary businessmen headed to work on an average day. All the men look similar as they go about their day. It looks like any group of businessmen you might see at a bus stop. And you know it depicts a gloomy day because most of them are holding umbrellas.
Fortunately, for me, it was not a gloomy day, but rather sunny and warm. Other than noticing all these buildings and sculptures and some oddities, another thing that I noticed; how much quieter the city has become since Covid. Hardly any one honks their horns ( of course the lack of Taxis could be part of the reason) and how during lunch hour there are so few people out, probably due to the fact that many offices are closed and people are working from home.
