Picture This #234 ~ Sculptures Or Statues

Beautiful banner shot, Marianne, well-deserved! I love the colors and shapes.

I had to do some thinking on this theme; there are plenty of interesting sculptures and statues about, but we are in the middle of another polar vortex and I don't wish to go out. But, no worries, I stepped outside the box a bit, and came up with some shots from my files.

From my garden, a guardian we call "Spot".

Amber seal
On my dresser, a little seal carved from Baltic Amber.

Bronze Lion
I may have shown this bronze leopard before, but here he is again.

  1. Hi Benni !! Love all three of your shots for the theme!! 'Spot' certainly looks scary, a good guardian to be sure!! The little carved seal is lovely, I like how it's catching the light. My favourite is the bronze leopard, it's really cool. I'd like one of those myself. Again, I like how you've caught the light in this one

  4. Each one has its own charm. Love the statue from the garden, I bet it looks good outside. The seal is lovely and you can show the leoplard as much as you like, well worth a second view

    1. Thanks, Pat. The statue in the garden is a polymer type resin, so it is light but also weather resistant. Glad you like the leopard, he is one of my favorites.

  5. I love these figurines. The subjects are at home or in your home. I love the last image of the bronze leopard. Great lighting in this photo.

  8. Thank you so much Benni, though, that is the shape of green beans and strawberries, so no attribution due to me on that one. I am still surprised that Mitch chose that one, but pleased as well.

    I like your out the box archive photographs and that Bronze Leopard would look so nice on my mantel piece *hint* :-)

    1. Thank you, Marianne. Yes, the leopard is quite African, when I come to visit I shall bring him along. ; )
