the closed eyes of the first ones look a little creepy, somehow.
I wonder if the same monumental mason was responsible for most of these? They suit black & white, but the one with the coloured lichens is just beautiful.
I'm glad you showed more cherubs than skulls; I find the latter creepy, just not my cuppa tea. I like the monochromes, Nicola, but like Deb, I particularly liked the shot with the orange lichen.
Love the lichens on those beautiful faces!
I particularly liked the closeup in the third shot. Such delicacy around the hair line. Such a skilled stone mason.I wonder how many of these were markers for young people. Somehow that is what I came away with. I love looking at the skills of these artisans. A skill which is nowadays rare, and machine driven.The orange lichen is very attractive, too.
Me too, the orange lichen makes the shot interesting.
Leave me a message.
