Pigeon Square

Market Street, Ferreirasdorp

The story goes that there’s an old Muslim trader in downtown Joburg who, for years, has put out crumbs everyday for the birds on this oddly shaped island in the middle of Market Street. A more recent development are the origami-like statues of pigeons, that serve as perches for these city fouls. I really like the statues. Who makes perches for pigeons? I’d like to meet you…
