Some people are ‘statuesque’ meaning tall and attractive but I tend to use this word more when referring to sense of ‘presence’. Those who make heads turn when they enter a room and not because of appearance, more that their energy or vibe attracts attention, their very presence … these are the true statuesque people.
Statues are built to commemorate, some for the artistry … few attract my attention yet are resoundingly popular as pooping perches for pigeons and other birds seeking a higher vantage point. Those that capture anatomical detail or fluid movement strongly attract me … like the bronze man in Greece. I was totally bewitched by his ‘presence’!
Here is a collection of a variety of different statues or sculptures I’ve captured over the last couple of years.
