    I love this one... and I love this kind of Art, often overlooked , same with artwork on buildings and in cemeteries..There is an ancient Graveyard in the woods, by my house and it has some fabulous sculptures there, some are broken, all are covered in moss...
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    tonight in Liverpool all the galleries and cultural places are open till late..from morning to late night..about 11 oclock..it's in it's seventh year and it's odd if you come out of a gallery and it's pitch black but cool nonetheless

    I love Richard the Lion Heart in central London. He looks so Kingly majestic. Very impressive statue on his horse.

    i think this link works. I shouldn't really like it as it glorifies war. I like the statue but really I ought not to.

    Aside from the war association it is certainly a great expression of nobility and determination. Even wars are necessary at times.

    Yes, war is sometimes the only solution I agree. It is the image of strength and determination like you said. The physique is something to aim for too if you like to look strong!!!
    We are having an in or out vote on Europe at the moment in the UK and one argument for staying in is that it has prevented much war in the last 40 years. Shakespeare wrote glamorising war such as Henry V but ask anyone who has been in a war and it is as agonising as it is possible to imagine leaving ex soldiers often very troubled mentally as well as physically. I hope the human race can get more on a level footing counrties -wide and bring our thinking higher once we have more equality........we can but dream!

    one thing I've often wondered about queens and king statues is that they were often murderes and cruel people and I see no need even today to having statues of them..
