What do their faces reveal?

by Joyce on November 10, 2012

Travelling between medieval towns in the south of France it’s easy to forget where you are sometimes. There are beautiful old buildings and ruins everywhere. I was taken with a few of the sculptures I saw. The faces are so expressive you can’t help wondering what they’re thinking.

Peaceful isn’t she?

 

Male sculptures often have fierce and angry expressions. The women seem softer  — more contemplative.  They can also be sad.  Like any work of art, they certainly make us think.

Hi, Joyce ~
Wow! What a beautiful website you have. I didn’t even know about it. Thanks for your visit and comments. Now I’ve found you here as well as on Pinterest.
Cheers from DC~

Thanks Loi! I’ve been reading your blog for awhile — love your style. I guess you were doing some buying for Tone on Tone in Scandanavia — would love to read a post about some of the treasures you found. Take care, Joyce
