        There is something about objects that “live” in the proximity of people.Folks like to touch things, lean on things, eventually polish them with their skin and oils until I can only wonder how many it took to develop the patina and texture on those “touch spots” !

    Very interesting story about the fraud – and I like the particular angle – the building in back and tree – and the patina on mr Curley shows the art these sculptures are – I like these more than standing monuments – hm

      Thank you…You could have the best of both worlds because just few feet away is also a standing sculpture of him…but I chose this one because I like it best for all of the reasons you mention. Cheers!
