Statues in Hengyang and Zhanjiang

statue of a male holding a Coca Cola glass "speaking" with a statue of a female

The above pair of statues, one holding a cup of Coca Cola, near the main railway station in Hengyang, Hunan province, reminded me of the statue below I saw in Zhanjiang, Guangdong province, wearing a shirt with the Chinese characters for "Zhanjiang" followed by "Very Good".

statue of Western-looking man with a camera and wearing a shirt with the words "湛江 Very Good"

I suspect there is an interesting story or two to tell here, but, at least for now, I will just say it was another unexpected connection.
