Odd Statue

 

 


Now days I have so many odd shots that it is difficult to pick one each week. Last week I let Rhett pick. This time I thought I would sleep on it overnight and let my dreams tell me which one to post today. Alas, this is the one that came to me in my dreams so I am literally living my dreams.

Last month when we went to Columbus, Indiana for the concert our daughter-in-law, Kristina wanted us to attend because of Blair Carmen and to my surprise and excitement, the Nelsons, we passed by this very different statue as we were trying to find a parking place. I knew I had to have a picture of it because it was so unusual. I told Krisina I was walking over towards it and I would catch up with them. Well, it turned out this avenue led to where we all had to enter anyway. Everyone caught up with me as I snapped two shots of it. I loved the statue itself, but what I found really odd was the red curved light posts behind her. I have never seen anything like them. Have you? Anyway she is a real piece of art. I tried to go on line to find out more about her, but was unsuccessful so I don't know the story behind her. Sorry. If any of you know, please fill me in with the details.

Today is hanging day... LOL I hang my piece of art work later this evening for the art show on Thursday. Wish me luck.

It's a mermaid! Those red pole lights are unusual. I have never seen any like it.

If you want to make a clickable link do this but where I put * , put a < or > this to enclose link.

*a href="http://katneyskaboodle.blogspot.com/"nameOFlink*/a*

Hope that worked. There is a space after the first a. The first * is a < and the second one is a > and both used to enclose the /z at the end.

She is very unusual ~ as are the curved, red lamposts behind her. Great catch!

She's beautiful! Really lovely! Those red light things are strange all right.

Hi Becky,
I love this! I wonder if she isn't some mother earth or goddess type seeing that her arms are leaf-like.
The light poles look old fashioned but maybe they were encased to compliment the statue.
You really had a great eye to catch something so beautiful.

Well, I am so glad you liked it Carletta. Thanks for saying I have a great eye. I like to think so.
