English vs French Leaders

I saw these two statues, near each other, whilst I was out and about in Paris on weekend. I think it shows the difference between the French and the English quite well, as represented by their leaders. First we have Charles de Gaulle, jauntily striding along, looking like he is on a fashion runway. Then we have Churchill, who basically looks like a grumpy old man. I also like how the French have put de Gaulle on this massive pedestal whilst old Churchill was hidden amongst some trees.
