This sculpture is a striking greeter for the entrance of the museum.

Both these and the previous shot are terrific compositions! Well done, Jack!

I researched this sculptor and his work is heavy and massive. His exhibit must be quite remarkable to see.

Her artwork is much better than its title...

Was so attracted by the face that I did not notice the reflection until I read your lines!:o)

It is a style contrast with the building behind it. Very impressive.

Great reflections behind that statue. Your perspective is perfect, unusual, but still perfect.

The reflections set off the sculpture ... I would love to see the whole view to see what it is that is reflecting. Very interesting piece ...

The sculpture is well placed with the reflection behind.I like the smooth head and hands contrasted with the texture on the rest of the piece.

Very cool!

I love the progression from finely sculpted to almost the raw material at the bottom. I'm sure I could have said that better but it's early! I like this one a lot. I think I could spend a lot of time photographing it many different ways. Beautiful.
