I like this statue - two faces of prudence.

Very interesting statue JM!

Looking to the past - I wonder what she sees (and what we've learned!) and looking to the future - I'm not at all sure I would want to know what the future holds!

Lovely photo, JM, of a beautiful sculpture!

Gine said...

Etonnant ... le cadre apporte encore du mystère à cette Janus !

Sharon said...

I love the way you framed this shot. Very nice.

Beautiful shot and marvellous symbol.

Prudence is what is needed in my region during these days of turmoil. We see the past but not the future. What will be?

VP said...

This is something new and very interesting. I like the statue and the angle.

Babzy said...

Sometimes it is prudent to just look away. MB

Randy said...

What a wonderful sculpture. I wonder what the snake have to do with the past or the future?

Jack said...

I don't know the story of Prudence and two faces. But, I admire the perspective of the photo you have shown us. It looks extra impressive when shot from a very low angle. Nice.

I really like the statue, I can think of many meanings for the two faces!

Francisca said...

She has two faces of prudence... perhaps I have none. :-D Kidding... Nice angle, Jose.

Janus was there, apparently... nice catch, my friend...

Nossa que estranho! Mas é perfeito para uma escultura bem em frente o parlamento!
Cool!
Amei o angulo nessa foto!
