A year ago... Paris Day 3 our first stop at The Musée Rodin in Paris, France, is a museum that was opened in 1919, primarily dedicated to the works of the French sculptor Auguste Rodin. It has two sites: the Hôtel Biron and surrounding grounds in central Paris, and just outside Paris at Rodin's old home, the Villa des Brillants at Meudon (Hauts-de-Seine). The collection includes 6,600 sculptures, 8,000 drawings, 8,000 old photographs, and 7,000 objets d’art. The museum receives 700,000 visitors annually. The Musée Rodin contains most of Rodin's significant creations, including The Thinker, The Kiss, and The Gates of Hell. Many of his sculptures are displayed in the museum's extensive garden. The museum includes a room dedicated to the works of Camille Claudel, and includes one of the two castings of The Mature Age (Wikipedia) 🇫🇷 #ayearago#flashbackfriday#mheesadventures#mheestraveladventures#eurotrip2018#interrail2018#vacation2018#bucketlist#travelgoals#museerodin#augusterodin#sculptures#paintings#drawings#oldphotograph#paris#france
(🗿203) “The Immigrants” is one of the more moving statues in Battery Park NYC. Depicting a small cross section of his nations immigrant class, the statue sit near the spot thousands of immigrants entered this country. With all that’s going on in our country (and around the world) regarding the modern immigrates coming here for their chance at freedom, I thought this statue was fitting. Words below from nycgovparks.org.
Sculptor Luis Sanguino (b. 1934) celebrates the diversity of New York City and the struggle of immigrants in this heroic-sized bronze figural group. The sculpture depicts figures of various ethnic groups and eras, including an Eastern European Jew, a freed African slave, a priest, and a worker. The figures’ expressive poses emphasize the struggle and toil inherent in the experience of the immigrant or dislocated person.
The sculpture is located at the south end of the Eisenhower Mall in Battery Park near Castle Clinton, which served as a processing facility for newly arrived immigrants from 1855 to 1890, when construction began on a larger, more remote facility at nearby Ellis Island. The piece was donated by Samuel Rudin (1896–1975), who commissioned the sculpture in the early 1970s, intending it to be installed near Castle Clinton as a memorial to his parents, who, as it is noted on the plinth, emigrated to the United States in the late-19th century. Although Rudin died in 1975, Rudin’s family took up the campaign to install the sculpture at the park, and it eventually was dedicated on May 4, 1983.
It’s inscribed: "DEDICATED TO THE PEOPLE OF ALL NATIONS / WHO ENTERED AMERICA THROUGH CASTLE GARDEN / IN MEMORY OF SAMUEL RUDIN / 1896-1975 / WHOSE PARENTS ARRIVED IN AMERICA IN 1883"

His cowherd are sweet (divine), his cows are sweet, his stick is sweet, and so is the world.
He is so divine that his destruction is also sweet so is his blessing. With the lord of sweetness, the world is sweet and charming. (madhurashtakam hymn composed by Shri Vallabhacharya, a poet who created divine magic with words during the reign of Vijayanagara.

This #murthi was supposed to be immersed in the water when the temple was 'developed' .
This murti reminds us of the famous Venu Gopal from the Hoysala Temples in Karnataka.
A great way of displaying art is with frame that match in terms of their colour. Don't be afraid to mix and match the kinds of artwork, or frame type – give them unity by making sure the colours complement one another
