Located where Denman Street, Davie Street, and Beach Avenue converge to form Morton Triangle, on the edge of English Bay and Stanley Park, this collection of 14 bronze figures, each approximately 8-feet tall, each bearing the same, laughing visage of the artist himself, is an intoxicating piece of work.

Anyway, here’s a close-up I snapped of one of the figures:
