While shambling around London, I popped into Berkeley Square Gardens.
I really liked these statues. The striations on the stone, the holes, the highly carved faces, the unfinished parts. Very thought provoking. I stood there like an idiot observing them. Very nice.
Benares in London…
This lovely lady is the Lady of Sumaria (Water Carrier) statue by Alexander Munro, a Pre-Raphaelite sculptor, made in 1858. She really spoke to me. The jar has been repaired as one can see, but overall, the face is beautiful, the pose is exquisite and the sculptor has really captured the essence of somebody who provides water to people. Really beautiful statue.
This is what I love about London, these little nooks and crannies which are full of history and delightful little statues.
