Looking upon a statue, it amazes me how some artists can reproduce the human form with such perfection while also capturing the essence of a character, such as natural beauty, a dynamic pose, or an emotion. That rush of awe and wonder will forever captivate me, and is something that I've always enjoyed.
Eventually I'll fill this blog page with photos of statues that I find amazing. For starters, here is my favourite statue of all....
This stunning angel statue is located in Ottawa, Ontario in the downtown area. It is situated at the corner of St. Patrick and Sussex, opposite the National Gallery of Canada and directly across the street from Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica, a National Historic Site, certainly a suitable location for such an amazing and inspiring statue.
The statue depicts a male angel figure as though he is descending from the heavens while holding a trumpet in one hand. Unfortunately the artist who created this breathtaking work is unknown. These are my own photos of the statue, taken in June 2010.
More amazing statue images will be posted here soon!
