Art, mistresses and snot

There are lots of women in the Lyons Sculpture Park, big one's small ones, the one above is my favorite, to me she is dancing, like a belly dance smooth and pure. She was sculpted by Jon with thought and love. She for a small time was his mistress!
There is a long and distinct history of torsos in art beginning I'm informed by the wise and all knowing Wikipedia ( since was 5th and 6th century ancient Greece...well i don't really want to offer a history lesson but Jon's has sculpted lots of beautiful torso..he molds, cressesses them and them if he is still in love with them offers them for sale to to a new and worthy home..their the lucky ones..

If however he should fall out of love with then end up in a stack of mangled, disenchanted soul on the stack of lifeless limbs cast away like a piece of snot.

Sometimes for the very fortunate there is salvation when on a simple stroll he spots a sculpture within the stack and the passion is revisited and they are saved from the pile to be put ones more upon a pedestal and praise....

  1. Love the first sculpture. When I saw it I thought I saw a noose at the top of the stone, and thought your mistress was some disembodied ghost, but then I caught on to the sensual curves of the stone and voila, there she was. Nicely done. And I love the discarded pile too. Very cool, Dixon.
