Do they dress them up on special occasions? The cloth looks to be in great shape (compared to the age of that moss-covered statue!). Great shot!

@B.Sully: I'm not sure about that.
Interesting figure...nice capture!

I have a feeling this would get the attention of most visitors who might be inclined to go where they are not welcome. Fine shot.
31 May 2012 2:52pm

I love the combination of sculpture and moss that clothes, the flower stuck into a green hair! Mythical guardian, it seems there for a very long time. I really like the fantasy of this exotic photo , both comic and serious. Nice day to you Steve.

a dressed stone guard - great image

I noticed this in the background of yesterday's image and was curious about it. I wonder do they change the "clothes" occasionally? I like the angle of this photo. You have captured the detail and texture wonderfully. How about that flower in its hair?

Interesting detail! Superb image!
31 May 2012 4:59pm
interesting sculpures! i like the moss cover on the faces ... and the fact that they are wearing clothes (against the cold ?!? ;-)))
31 May 2012 6:27pm
that picture is pretty nice as it is mixed in nature, and historic architecture, along with the new flower that gives a unique touch. very nice photo. a big kiss. Alejandra
31 May 2012 6:28pm
and they're even dressed up! :) nice catch!
31 May 2012 7:00pm
The detail makes this image especially interesting. I love how organic life is taking over human art in time.

Beautifully aged statue with the rich green moss, love the flower too! Great photo!

Interesting dressed statue and fabulous details !!! I like how it's covered with moos and the little flower ....
Great shot ...

I can see how they would scare intruders away. Very good shot Steve, and thanks for your comments.

Such an intricately designed statue that is adorned with some interesting clothing. I love how the white flower stands out in this shot. Well framed and captured!
