Just a bit of fun, these are known as The Illuminated Crowd, set in down town Montreal & sculpted by Richard Masson from polyester resin, It is located on McGill College (just above President Kennedy Ave.)
There are sixty-five figures in total, The Illuminated Crowd sends out a mix of messages which involve the truth, comedy and a sense of tragedy, you will see that the people near the front are overcome with joy and wonder, the middle section displays some people talking to one another and the back section of people are mixed with different emotions of good and bad.

Beautiful "collage" each and every one of these pictures is beautiful, but all of them together are really impressive!

Good evening Wilson,
The assembled compisition is very original, and shows your effort to describe this work in an interesting way. The result does not disappoint, in spite of perhaps a small lack of clearness. Nice idea, good work. Cheer.
Have a good evening

hehe, indeed funny monument. Very interesting composition of stitched photos. Spectacular view.

I like this montage of that sculpture - I must have missed it when visiting Montreal. I suppose one can't see everything in a few days, huh? I was busy eating most of the time, anyway.
I like how you show us these angles on it, it's almost three dimensional - I suppose if we printed it, cut it out and folded it together right it would be!
Have a great evening,

Fascinating statue and note. In your swing through North America, you really did see so much. I like this triptych very much.

Long time no see!
Nice photos, pleasing colour contrasts and the BG window framing makes a nice patterned backdrop for the statues. Well captured and presented. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Wilson, Well balanced trilogy of these statues of polyester. The effect is good and the appeal is strong. Good blue and white tones. TFS. Murray.
PS Just found your best animals site-many thanks for inclusion.

A very nice and original stiching work. The way you have arranged these statues is really creative. A perfect presention and I believe that you have captured almost all of the 64 figures in your picture. Really well done. TFS and have a nice evening!

un particolare collage quello che mostri con i tre scatti a rendere bene l'idea complessiva della composizione.
Apprezzabili i riflessi che danno luce al tutto.
pablominto (53744) 2010-06-07 0:23
Fine details in the subject!
I like the creative way of combining three different points of view in presenting this work of art...
Well exposed and fine natural colours!
Charo (51210) 2010-06-17 15:40
These magnificent sculptures that are very interesting in the light of the number of characters.
Excellent frame with very good light and details.
tusharkmandal (3171) 2010-06-29 0:28
A great collage. Very nicely managed. I like the long horizontal view.
JCG (35129) 2010-06-29 2:10
An astonishing work-of art and a good photographic assembly for us to show it. Taking into account dimensions of the image you could have made a large version which would have made it possible to see more details on the characters who seem attractive in their respective expressions… But it does not matter the quality of the image here is good and enough fine to see the details. Well done Wilson and thank you for the note.
With all my friendships of sunny Versailles and an excellent day,
jhm (139268) 2010-06-29 2:34
You place excellent three pictures together, thank you very much for the good note, we get a little bit information about the three statues.
Nice composition, color and sharpness are excellent for look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
emjleclercq (15780) 2010-06-30 14:20
An original idea for a stiching, which allows us to see the sculpture from three different points of view at the same time.
All the best,
gildasjan (41604) 2010-07-02 6:55
Elles ont vraiment belle allure ces statues.Leur teinte équilibre bien le bleu de leur support.
Bonne fin de journée

un montage astucieux et lumineux qui aurait mérité une version LP.
AKITA (15125) 2010-07-25 14:17
your original cropping and stitching show me the impressive ambience of this amazing statues very well,
lots of people of statues look appealing and warning something significant to us all,
maybe it is common to works of Auguste Rodin,
thank you for your excellent picture,
Graal (97527) 2010-07-25 23:48

pierrefonds (57033) 2010-09-09 5:24
The stitch of the three photos is showing the different aspect or expression shoowned by the sculpturs. the subject is well framed. The light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
tedesse (25133) 2010-09-10 12:46

guytoc (3614) 2010-09-20 13:19
Your stitch is an actual portrait of our society, where the man lets his feelings explode. Here on a very graphic and dramatic way. A very fine social work indeed. Congratulations.
boa (6021) 2010-09-21 13:12
i also like the idea with this set of pictures. The statues are very dramatic and it is nice to see them together, Tfs !
Have a nice evening.

interesting composition, the statues are eye catching, I like the presentation, well done,
Urs (14082) 2011-02-28 7:33
I never tried my hand on stitching and I never will, because I could not sell such stitched pictures to wire services, but your triple stitch is very innovative, I like it. It is different what I have seen before, it is original. Very good and precise photo job.
jmdias (55497) 2011-04-08 17:45
a curious sculpture. I liked this photo divided in 3 parts, showing the artwork in different angles. nice job, good light and sharpness
