These are really great Ken...especially like the cupid (I assume) inside.
I agree with you D.
The only statue I recognize is photos #2 and #3, It is a copy of a Roman marblelo statue of Diane chasseresse which is in the Louvre. Shouldn't #5 have a bra?,
Of course, it is marble. Sorry. When you type on a tablet lying in bed, strange and funny things happen!
Chm, LOLOL. The next to the last is Cleopatra from a sculpture by Canova.
Les grands esprits... Great minds... I was going to Google statue by Canova at Valençay. Thank you for telling us it is Cleopatra and by Canova.
#5 is probably Vènus au bain. That's why she doesn't wear a bra. QED
Well I suppose that 'Cupid' should be wearing a pair of pants then - English for underwear.
Cupid is my favorite also. Everyone has curly hair.
Exquisite, every one of them. I worry about the deterioration of the first statue. I wonder if there’s any way to protect an outdoor statue to prevent further damage from the elements.
What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
