These beautiful sculptures were in a hospital lobby where I had a meeting Monday. They were so gorgeous to me. I had to take pictures. They are life-sized and the water falling onto the umbrella makes it so life like. I couldn't really capture the beauty in a picture. The material picked up so many colors and they were just glowing. The artist must be so proud of their work. For folks coming into the hospital for tests or visiting loved ones it must be extremely soothing. The sound of the water and the children looking so sweet is touching.
These children were sitting on a bench with a puppy. I just can't tell you how striking these were to me. There was just something mystical about them. What a glorious gift to be able to make this much beauty to share. It's awesome to me.

Beautiful sculptures and they will help to take away the tension of the hospital visit.
Great shots.

Thanks for sharing those with us. They are very lifelike.

I've never grasped how the artist takes a block of wood, or a piece of stone, or in this case makes a clay mold to pour the bronze into and creates something 3-D and lifelike. It fascinates me. It's a gift.

When ever I see children sculptures I think of Jesus saying,
"Let the little children come to me,and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God
belongs to such as these....

Nice! I'm always amazed how someone can see that in their mind and then create it.
