Sculpture and Blossoms

I took this one a few weeks back. This sculpture which I don't have a name for sits outside of a gallery that's not far from my house.

Great setting.... nothing beats cherry blossoms!

That's quite attractive. Is he wrapped in some kind of cloak. Love the blossoms in the background. A really fine composition, Randy!

I think he needs a pair of glasses! His eyes look a little squinty. ;)

Love those apple blossoms in the background. I miss the Apple Blossom Festival they would have in Farmington. Can't wait to see a photo from Cinco de Mayo

Pretty cool. The tree is beautiful. The sculpture looks kind of mean!

So much feeling in this sculpture and blossoms always make everything better.

The blossoms make such a nice background for the eagle or hawk dancer. Maybe celebrating their hunting and flying prowess!
