THE LOVE OF A STATUE

A BUST is a sculpted or cast representation of the upper part of a human figure. This one sits on my mantel at home and there is something about her that is beautiful and captivating.



This "love" is trying to keep warm by my fireplace! I find something calming about her sweet little face. When decorating with a statue indoors, it is like bringing the outside in!




It's funny really. These are my girls and they sit beside each other all day and never speak to each other. I wonder if they are fighting or just lost in their own thoughts.



Here is a garden statue brought indoors to listen to your tales as you wash up. You can add a statue or bust to any room in your home inside or out.




I would love to say that this is my backyard, but sadly, it is not. This beautiful display is at Gina Glavin's French Inspired Fantasy - see March/April 2010 Issue of Victoria Magazine. I do however have a statue at the back of my yard, a gift from special friends years ago. I often look out my kitchen window at her and wonder how she is doing out there!



Venus de Milo is for sale at The Passionate Home. This statue depicts Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty. You could take her home and put her in your bathroom or bedroom to hang your necklaces! Of course the real statue is in the Louvre Museum in Paris!



One of my favorites at the store is this little winged angel. He seems to be pondering what to do next! I think he might like to find a new home where he can sit in the garden or on a patio and keep someone company! He does not eat much and he loves to listen!!




At this French Market we found Mary Antoinette, Archduchess of Austria and Queen of France. She is the one on the right!!! WOW, how beautiful they both are!!



This statue may be just a bit big to bring indoors and may be a bit much for most gardens but with a little luck, you should be able to find one that can fit into your space just perfectly! When choosing your statue, really look at the face, each one has it's own story, it's own history and it needs to speak just to you! In the case of the Statue of Liberty, I think she speaks to many!
