PPAC: Fanor Hernández in Rome 2.

Here is the second part of Fanor’s bronze statues as happened upon along the Appian Way in Rome six years ago.

As you could see last week in part 1, this Columbian sculptor is very good at making bronze come to life. Today amore, his friend from work, our two dogs and I enter the villa at 222, Appian Way, with some statues but the visiting hours were ending and we were rushed through. The light was lovely though.

In the gardens of this archaeological site Capo di Bove we again admire the girl on the swing, and there is the whole family up in the air, and some dancers – in one word: joy. Who knows if these statues are still here, but I believe it was temporary. We were lucky.

And who knows where we land next week but it will be somewhere public and artistic as every week for Marsha’s PPAC challenge. Have a lovely weekend.

Oh, and as I forgot to mention in my yesterday’s bird post, today is Gregorjevo in Slovenia, the day when birds are getting married. Let’s proceed quietly.

  1. Manja, such athletic statues! I think someone ought to start doing realistic statues of aging people, saggy skin, wrinkles, flab… Oops, it is supposed to be art. OK, then I guess modeling statues after beautiful people is fine. LOL. The birds look happy enough, just giving each partner some space. That’s a good thing. No lawyers are necessary. Great post, Manja. 🙂

    1. Hey, Marsha! Just yesterday I saw a recent post of Sarah and her statue of an old man and thought of you. There’s an aging person for you! We are all beautiful and deserve a statue!! And if we’re happy, that much better. I’m glad that you see happy distancing of the birds. Better no lawyers, I agree. Thank you!

      1. Thank you of thinking of me when you see an aging old man, Manja, LOL. I do love statues of a variety of people. Aging people make interesting photos and pictures because of all their lines and folds, teeth missing, etc. 🙂

    1. Thank you, K. I’m glad that you can see the movement. By the by, Luka and Mavericks coming to Brooklyn tomorrow. Knicks were the only one that were able to beat them in the last three weeks (just like three time before). We’ll see how tomorrow goes. Durant is the player of last week in the East, and Luka in the West. Perfect.

  2. What a lovely setting for outdoor sculpture. It must have felt very serene being there. I loved the photo below the post of birds on wires beside those wonderfully shaped electrical insulators.

      1. Yes, I find t insulators fascinating. I’m tempted to buy old glass ones on ebay but they are an expensive, totally useless indulgence that will look good on a shelf until I get sick of the clutter. 🙂
