That's a very "realistic" statue, very honest and interesting!
God bless you!

such weariness of life in this figure.

My artistic prejudice is still lingering between 17th and 19th century, but I like what you visually got from this!

Frighteningly life like! An amazing art piece!

Oh my gosh, he looks so real! the lights make me think of tanning beds for some reason.

When I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a real person! I like this as it looks so realistic and you captured it so well.

Amazing shot!

The reality of this one is like getting hit in the gut! Superb! Scary, but superb! Reality like this can only be captured in a sculpture like this if it has been known by the artist -- either physically or mentally/emotionally. Terrific, JM!

Not sure if I like it, but very interesting nevertheless

Hmmm...don't know what to say. I don't think I'd pay to see it, but it certainly is intriguing. For some reason it reminds me of a soldier cleaning up after a battle...

And I must say that you did a great job exposing this shot - what with all that light in the background.

I also see that you're having a problem with your "My other blogs" gadget. Very frustrating. Only a few of my blogs are showing a picture.

Blogger is bogged down today it seems.

Hope you're having a great weekend.

I could name it: "why, why, why I do not understand modern art???"
