    Perfect image this morning, or any morning for that matter. It’s drizzling here and cool and this beautiful image is cool too. Lovely. Wish they made car ornaments this evocative today.

    Thanks. I checked out Steve’s bio page and will be on the lookout for more of his incredible work.

    Beautiful image of strength. Reminds me of a person with clear purpose, not letting resistance of any kind slow them down.

    Thanks, Mary and Karyn. Somewhere there is (or was) and artist whose work this sculpture was, who imagined it and shaped it. And others who made this design into a silver reality. And others practiced it too, this form of art. Maybe the pieces were not Rodin, but these pieces got around more!

    The ornament is fantastic. It’s the composition of the photo that slays me, though: really gorgeous work, evoking so many Classical archetypes. It said Zephyr to me more than anyone, but yes, gargoyles, Art Nouveau style as a classic in and of itself, winged Eros. The smooth and dapple creates such a sense of speed, too.
