Les Vertues terrassant les Vices, portail nord de la façade occidentale de la cathédrale de Strasbourg. Les Vertus, drapées et couronnées, marquent du bout de leur lance de petits sujets humains écrasés. Le thème des Vertus combattant les Vices reste cher à l’art alsacien, on le retrouve dans l’un des vitraux de la cathédrale.

This was mostly a food trip and not really for sightseeing, but we did do some!! We visited the Jing’an Temple in central Shanghai which was really neat!! Here is a collage of photos I took in different parts of the temple. #buddhism #jingantemple #jingan #temples #buddha #monuments #statues #china #sightseeing #travel

Patsaita ihmettelemässä Polkan pyynnöstä. Patsaat on pelottavia. Ja niitä on joka paikassa!

Went for a wander through the magnificent grounds of Cottesloe Civic Centre today ... Love the beauty and symmetry of these stone urns.

Since it's Sunday I thought you'd enjoy some church architecture (don't worry heathens - it's based on ancient greek buildings)⠀

St Pancras New Church on Euston Road was consecrated in 1822 and intended to meet the worshipping needs of all the residents from the newly-developed Bloomsbury area. If you've ever gone past the church you'll have noticed several rather stunning ladies outside.⠀

These are four of the church's eight Caryatids - female figures used as building supports. At that time ancient Greek styles of building and design were enjoying a renaissance and New Church is regarded as a classic example of Greek Revival architecture. ⠀

At the east end of the church , the architects included two apses based on the Erechtheum in Athens. For a fee of £4,300 Charles Rossi and his son Henry was contracted to sculpt the caryatids, four for each apse. ⠀

The figures was cast in terracotta and each one carries either a symbolically extinguished torch or an empty jug, signifying the fact that they are guarding the entrances to the burial vaults under the church. There's a large sarcophagus under the roof, behind each group.⠀

They were transported to the site in sections and then cemented together around cast iron columns. Urban myth claims that the figures were originally too tall and their midsections had to be left out in order to fit under the roofs resulting in a slightly matronly appearance. This is probably a fable, although they do have disproportionately long legs. They may look stocky by modern standards but 19th century women did not look like stick insects.⠀

Besides, these girls had to look strong enough to hold up a stone roof. ⠀

Location - North and South sides of St Pancras New Church, Euston Rd, Bloomsbury, NW1 2BA⠀

Magyar Rádió is now part of the Duna Media Service I believe, but has been a mainstay of Hungary for over 90 years. It’s the public radio service for the country (I assume kinda like a Hungarian BBC? Educate me Hungarians!). I’ve mentioned before that József Somogyi is probably my favourite sculptor here. This almost Hellenic female figure flying amongst the doves is his work.
Not the best photo due to an ill-placed tree, but hey ho. The work dates from 1969.

Кстати, университет Падуи можно считать alma mater тех, кто настаивал, что "и всё-таки она вертится".В нём не только преподавал Галилео Галилей в 17-м веке, но и учился Коперник - в 16-м.

The Merchant Sea men's memorial, a frequently photographed sculpture in Cardiff Bay, S Wales. A sleeping face in the shape of a ship, formed from welding plates, in the way ships were constructed in times past.
