Celebrating gardens, photography and a creative life
So nice, so serene. 🙂
She has a lovely garden to overlook.
Serene, indeed! Her expression says it all. My inner state is beautiful. I do not care about my outward appearance.
The serenity of what is actually a piece of rock is staggering and a testament to the tremendous genius of the sculptor . Thank you for sharing
Thank heavens for artists to make us look at things differently.
There’s a bit of the shepherdess about her. Interesting how serenity implies mystery — words can be so irrelevant.
You may be right that she’s a shepherdess.
I’m glad I saw this statue after it had aged and developed some patina and character. I don’t think I would have appreciated it when it was brand new.
I understand what you mean. She is well placed a clearing on a hillside overlooking the main garden before you come to more of a wooded area. I had to write ‘clearing’ three times – the spell check kept correcting it to ‘e-learning’, which seemed very out of place, but so very WordPress!
Serene, yes, but also a little ghostly. I thought I saw her move. 😉
She does seem to be frozen mid-movement.
Fascinating. One usually sees statues like this clad in garlands and flowing togas. The waistcoat and hat were very unexpected(by me anyway).
She has something of modernity and something of timelessness. Oddment mentioned that she might be a shepherdess – you could easily imagine Marlowe or Shakespeare writing about her.
Where’d she get the cool hat?
The Queen thinks that hers is heavy. 🙂
