Not a lot to say, it's a sculpture to stumble across when near the Europa or the Crown/Robinson's but hardly worth a visit.

Sculpture of two women situated outside the Victoria Street entrance to the Railway/Train station. I have seen some tourists taking photos beside this, and when you stand to look at them, they are impressive...most times we rush by and don't even notice them.
