Good Fellas

From this morning at the Huntington.















I told you men were lovely.















And they make sure the lawn is mowed. Or is it mown? Whichever you use, they'll be sure to correct you. Because they're lovely. And tiresome. And think they're always right.

  4. The word you were probably thinking of was, "mooned."

  5. Well I hear ya. What Paris needs is more "nekkid" men statues and less women. Of course there's the Rodin. I never miss that place.

  6. Another reason you need to visit the Huntington Virg. Not a single one wears jeans. Or a leaf.

  7. There's one with a leaf. My daughter spotted him on the trek back from the children's garden. Her comment was, "Mommy, why does that stone man have a plant on his hoo hoo?"

  16. I assume it has to do with the sculptor's life.

  17. Did you see the corpse flower?

  18. I assume you are not speaking metaphorically, Muse.

    Yes, the famous foul flower should unfurl around july, I think. The Huntington is on alert, and I'll let you know.

  21. To much emphasis on the fella's penis. I've been trying to figure out the name of the object that the sculpture leans on. I'm sure some term exists for it. Along with his BEAUTIFUL feet, I'm drawn to his lean-to. Looks like a stalk of some sort.

  22. PA: He does seem to be a "stalker."

    Karin: I'm going to need some banana leaves for my next project.
