He doesn't look a day over 245 years!

Such an interesting way of looking at this lad. He's not nearly as sinister as Dorian.

Olivier said...

j'aime bien le titre ;))

JM said...

@Leif: LOL! Maybe 246, no? :-)

Birdman said...

I'd say. Looks pretty good for 250.

If so, then a very young Dorian Gray and he's heavenly!

Francisca said...

Brilliant title, JM... Wilde would no doubt approve.

I like this catch....sculpture always amazes me. Don't know how people create such beauty from block of stone. Especially like that 2nd snap that shows the door frame too.

Oh, I love Leif's comment!!! Certainly no older than 246!!! And I do love humor in the morning! What a great way to start the day. Marvelous captures as always, JM, even of a old/young Dorian Gray! Enjoy!

He's looking pretty darn good!

Immortalized in stone! Lovely.

VP said...

Well preserved, but after all these years spent there, I guess he need a vacation!

Nicely framed. I'm surprised he's still out in the elements. It seemed when I was in Europe that all the originals were placed inside and replicas outside.
And speaking of statues, yes Piazza della Signoria is awesome! I could have killed lots of time there!

Halcyon said...

Fantastic details. He's gray at least!!

Oh, gee, I know I read Dorian Gray when I was a teenager, but all I can remember is (1) I hated it and (2) it had something about eternal youth. This lad looks pretty good for his centuries.

Wonderful title!

I love the subtle color of the wall. Great sculpture.

Selling his soul to preserve his image certainly seems to have worked for him JM haha!!
