    Tell me about "Partners Statue"

    I love the Partners Statue, who doesn't?
    The statue that launched millions and millions of photographs at DL.

    But I've been trying to find history and origin. I assume it exists at ALL the Disney parks the world over?

    Year build (created)?
    Architect (sculpturer)?

    Trivia? Any? (I did learn about the Smoke Tree Ranch symbol on it)

    I'd sure appreciate any more information about this most popular DL icon.

    I did that. Unfortunately nothing very clear and concise came up, it's like searching the site for Mickey Mouse.

    99% of folks gush over the statue. I like Prag's iconoclastic take.

    Just some more information. Partners is at every Magic Kingdom except Disneyland Paris. Partners can still be found at the Disneyland Resort Paris inside the gates of the Walt Disney Studios Park.
