Frozen In Time

Outdoor sculpture at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Each of these sculptures stopped me in my tracks.  I was drawn towards their expressions, emotions, muscularity and movement.  The ability to transform bronze and marble into life amazes me. Aside from the sculpture at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the rest reside in the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

  1. Thanks Denise! The sculptor of Fragilina said he purposefully left her face opaque in expression so that viewers could assign their own emotions to the sculpture. She and the girl with the flowers and sundial are my favorites!
