Driving In France? Watch Out For Big Snails..!!

In case you are wondering what you will be reading then I’d say.. pehle ye dekh lo..


These are the road side sculptures made in France by Mr. Plé, which are sure to grab your attention..!!
The ones who didn’t like the idea of placing art on the roundabouts blamed Mr. Plé of destroying France’s rural landscape. Also defacing the countryside and driving the community life-blood out of towns.
Also with the central state funding for towns is spiraling downward and many see roundabout decoration as the kind of profligacy that has sent France’s public finances of course.
 Mr. Plé has defended it by saying that the sculptures don’t require the fuss that comes with maintaining a flower bed. And he says he charges as little as €35,000, or about $40,000, a sum local authorities can amortize over three years.
Mr. Plé’s creations exhibit a broad brush stroke. One roundabout is crowned by an 8-foot Neanderthal; upon another a 10-foot child pulls a model boat on a string. The small coastal town of Saint-Georges-de-Didonne boasts five of Mr. Plé’s works, each a unique design — one features giant parasols and deck chairs, another is scattered with pine cones up to 10 feet high — all on roundabouts.
 Mr. Plé says his works endure the test of time. That is because his material of choice — polyurethane foam — is sturdy stuff. Some villagers say the sculpture evokes the love-hate relationship between man and mollusk. For winegrowers, the snail is a pest while gourmands consider it a delicacy. Others celebrate weddings at the roundabout as local legend has it that the giant snails are lovers.
 The snails also reflect the reputation of the towns people who themselves are known ascagouillards, or “snail-like,” for their steadfast nature. Mr. Garnier says, snails also serve as a warning to drivers who speed.
So bhaiya seedhi baat.. agar Franceva mein drive karna hai to saavdhan rehna koi esnail shesnail dikh gai to budbak ki tarah darna nahin.. Okay..!!
