PICTURE THS #336 ~ STATUES OR SCULPTURES

Nice banner shot by Mitch... I really love this week's theme...

Ladies first and this one is named Pepita Jimenez, the muse of the Spanish sculptor Juan Valera (Madrid)

STATUES OR SCULPTURES

Perhaps Rome’s most smile inducing sculpture that symbolizes strength and wisdomSTATUES OR SCULPTURES
Gregos is a French-born artist, whose sculptured faces are seen in  Paris,mainly. However, we can find them in many cities scattered all over the world. Each face is a sort of self-portrait of the day to express his humours... The one you see pictured below ( I would say looking concerned or in bad mood), was on the wall of the building next to the hotel where I stayed recently in Madrid.

  1. Marvelous. I can't stop looking at your first shot, she is so beautiful, and wonderfully framed. To be able to make stone have the delicate textures of fabric and skin. Then I smiled at your two tots facing each other! Exquisite photo! The elephant is wonderful, he would bring a smile to my face as well. What an interesting way to express oneself by Gregos. Faces throughout the world. This one does look concerned and and I like the tight close-up shot you took.

  2. You really have some interesting sculptures, all so unique that I do not know where to begin. A mask, twins, an intersting lady and an elefant, each with its own charm. I just love them all.

  4. Hi Belita!!! A wonderful selection of photos for this week's theme. Fabulous detail in the sculpture of Pepita. Valera obviously put a lot of love into it. The two children facing each other on opposite balconies is unique. I love the elephant statue, it does make one smile. Gregos has captured a lot of character in his work, the expression is almost life-like. I wonder if he casts impressions of his face directly?
