Before being we were a shadow
After having been what remains for us
It is from afar that life guides us
It is from nearby that death presses in on us

Gosto mais das esculturas que estão por cima da cabeça, mas em todo caso gosto muito de esculturas em jardins.

I love it JM, and how fab does it look in its bed of colour! A brilliant tribute indeed.

I confess my ignorance, but I will try to amend it as soon as possible...

Nice capture of a beautiful sculpture. It's a lovely setting, but I wonder if those grasses don't tickle his nose. . . ;)

Nice art in a nice place.
I like the way you have composed this.

How interesting.

A really interesting tribute! Love the bright colors. :)

Unusual having the smaller bodies up above the huge head.

Randy said...

That is awesome!

Sharon said...

I see I've missed some great photos while I've been out globe trotting. It will probably take me a week to catch up and get the body clock back to normal.

Lovely sculpture and image of it ... I especially like the grass (or is it lavender). I don't know the poet though.

Wonderful tribute and very fitting for a poet...

Nathalie said...

Excellent composition and framing for this amazing art work. In a few weeks you'll have the lavender in the foreground too !
