I cannot believe that the statue has colour!! The statue is in deed better made than I would have thought of in a public park.

Great photography. I like the 2nd one more

We rarely see statues in 20th century clothing - especially women! Very nice. She looks like a poet.

HOw wonderful to salute poets. Not many statues of them I wouldn't think. Very interesting idea.

Your city seems to have a great collection of statues and sculptures ... It's a place I would certainly enjoy visiting.

In the future, maybe bloggers will get statues as well? ;)
