First my mind said "this is not Greek" Is george traveling to india these days...
And tne remark the football team ' scarf, so, compliments to the national team for being European Champions.
Might be a suporter after victory's night (ouzo)that left it.
Nice composition clear, sharp coloured, and very good choice of subject. The wood is coming to us thorought the precise photography.
But is it not a tourist I see behind the statue...

Kalos mera George(I hope this is right, (good day)!!!)
Good daily life shot. I like this combination of cultures, the traditional meets the contemporary. Good details on the statue and I like the busy backfield of the photo.
I am curious to know what the sign says.

Fun sight, George, looks like the statue is still celebrating the Greek team's victory at Euro 2004 :-) Interesting shot from the street with good colors; you could also have tried a slightly shallower DOF to isolate it a bit more from the background. Well seen and captured.

Colourful and arranged in indeed a very strange way statue, George! :-) Provokes a lot of thinking. Love the look of scrutiny on its face, as if waiting to see how far we humans can go in this culture mixture..:-) Wonderful capture with a lot of humor im it!

It looks Balinese or Javanese. Good sharpness, dof & color.
