Angel

By SlowSong
This is quite a small sculpture in the V&A but it's captivating. The face is so serene and the eyes seem to follow you around. I stood there for ages just looking at it, and I don't really like sculptures that much. If you want to see it it's in the newly-restored Cast Gallery on the ground floor. An amazing place.
The version is the info plate.

Off to Photo London later today. Looking forward to it, although it's a huge trek to see everything. Weather's great though, so should be a good day. Smile

the description says the original in Florence has blue eyes - that would be my idea of an angel

Being an old cynic, that's a knowing expression to me Chris.

It's quite unusual sculptures having irises in their eyes. They have even got catch lights.
I wondered about adding blue eyes to the bust?
