Given the popularity of horse statues in this city, and McElcheran's "The Conversation" on Stephen Ave, why not combine the two:If Calgary didn't already have so many art installations with horses, I would be totally fine with an astronaut on a horse. If it was some weird techno statue like the one above I still might even be down with it.
I'm okay with the hardie board as long as it's one of the decent styles. Most common hardie board style is the wood grained siding that we see on houses, but there are flat panel types that look pretty good.. Fingers crossed.The horizontal Z bar and mineral wool insulation are definitely making me think Hardie!
