Contemplation

By ColleenA
Another bronze art installation in the Queen Victoria gardens down the road from my apartment.
This one is by Baroness Yrsa Von Leistner, a German sculpture and artist is called The Phoenix. Feathers were once attached at several points over the body has broken off over the years.
I love the quiet solitude of this piece next to the Frog pond.
Many thanks for your votes comments and user awards all much appreciated

NB...PLEASE NOTE THE VERSION IS NOT MY PHOTO IT IS OFF THE INTERNET TO SHOW YOU WHAT HER WINGS LOOKED LIKE BEFORE THEY BROKE OFF DURING THE YEARS.
I have just googled to find out what this sculpture looked like before the wings broke off. Really bad quality but at least it gives you an idea. See V1

Yes it looked quite flimsy. Not sure if it was due to age or vandals. Iíll upload a photo I found on google.

Ha ha Mike the other photo isn’t mine. I clearly stated it was off the Internet to show what her wings looked like before they broke.

A very good view point considering the absent wings, Colleen. It gives the right feel for your title.

A beautiful composition of your lead image, and the sculpture is so lovely that it is a shame it is not repaired.
