Some 15 m up in the air these two bronze figures, one girl and one boy seems to be waiting for the aliens. While the children face to north, their guardians, two seagulls face the west, or maybe they only want to have a last sight to the sinking sun. Any aliens coming over the hills in the north are sure to meet this young people first, on their way downtown.
The monument is situated outside the central station in Oslo.

A photo with symbolic power.
I don't know how the base of this sculpture is, but how you put in scene is great. Makes me think about life on Earth or otherwhere, about aliens who will come or were there...
The seagulls bring me back to now, to reality.
Very well done

It's evident, that the couple has been waiting for a good while for the aliens. It's also evident, that the seagulls have guarded them well during this period ;-). Nice capture.

I think that the space of the left and the right is improving this picture more.
From the space without anything, I feel many tales.
