... with open eyes, and a generous heart, there is awe 'round many a corner ...
This is very real, the paper looks almost you can turn to the next page.
This is great. What is he reading?
Fabulous. So lifelike, you'd think someone had been bronzed, his newspaper preserved somehow, for posterity. Great photos.-- KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
Steffe, he is reading our national daily broadsheet, 'The Australian' which is a Murdoch paper.
Beautiful blog with beautiful photos, like this one, I love it! I will come here to visit you again. Regards,
A great piece of public art. I'm sure I've seen it before but I don't remember it.
What a fun, life like statue! Was he a talkative guy?
In a gruff Atticus Finch sort of way - not one for tolerating interruptions.
I like this. Like Jim, I must have seen it but can't place it.
No wonder I haven't noticed this - looks too real!
been a long time?! :)
It's really a wonderful sculpture. It looks very authentic.
So pleased I chanced upon your lovely site ~ love that handsome gentleman but oh my!! that journal is so ... big . ~Dianne~
There are sculptures of people like this in Melbourne and Brisbane but I don't remember ever seeing one in Sydney.
I can read the headlines...is it possible to read the actual articles? Is the paper dated? Is the date significant?
I have 5 other shots. Cannot read a date on any of them. He is reading an article headlined 'You are a democratic model for the world' under a full page heading of ' ... celebration of a nation'. I didnt read the articles which leads me to think they might have been too hard to read. There are two headings on the front page which I can only get part of.I shall go down and have another look ... just for you!
A great sculpture. Do people ever sit next to him?
Great photos of a great sculpture!
Funnily enough, I was looking to sit next to him until I did my double take ... I was waiting my turn to go down into the Tank Stream which is pretty much right underneath him.
That is really cool, so realisitic!
