I dropped by from "The Dreaming Tree." I love statuary. WE have some great ones in New Orleans.

Well, Halcyon said it... the angle on this shot is superbe! The blue sky background adds to the contrast of the dark bronze statue.

Bises,

How much weight they are forced to carry, to bare.
A nice mean to measure time and life.
Please have you all a good Tuesday.

Regarding your comment on my blog: Yes indeed those skulls are real. My daughter lives on a huge cattle. Everything is done on horseback so riding all day across the land they find all kind of treasure and artifacts. these being among them. they have hundreds of skulls and they love finding deer sheds.
