The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
I love the movement in this piece! Wow.And, come on on America, do it right this time... GOBAMA!!!
nice piece of art there..
Hey Jams,Can I borrow this pic to show the 'After' for my deep-fried post? hahaha.... It's a lovely piece of art.
Hi Jams, I actually don't know what an Elgin marble is so I looked it up *lol* They are wonderful collections of Greek artwork!
wow...where is the head :DMy WW entry this week : in HERE and HERE. Hope you have time to visit . Thanks
Is it blasphemous to say that my first thought was of the Black Knight in Monty Python and the Holy Grail?
I'm concentrating hard on this picture and thought of murder ran through my head *gulpz*happy ww Jams!! :)
Great photo! Not certain how I feel, but I do understand that there is some controversy about returning these to Greece.Happy WW :) My WW entries for today are at:Pastyme With Good CompanyeThe Paranormal BlogNuttin' ButPlease stop by if you have a moment :)
What a powerful piece
The folds in the fabric are amazing. Great shot of the sculpture.
I love the colour effect. Very nice.
Hi Jams, I am wondering what color this piece is or was? I did look up the Elgin Marble Company in Scotland, BUT, is this one of those that will be put back in the Parthenon?Happy WW!..
THanks everyone. THese are at the British Museum and are not likely to go baclk to Greece. Personally I think they would be better there than London
Interesting sculpture, a very fine WW entry today, Jams.Happy WW day!My WW post...
Very interesting shot! What is that for? Mine is up too, HERE. If you get a chance;) Happy WW!
That must of hurt.
Amazing! I wonder what was going through the sculptor's mind when he/she was sculpting it.
What happened to her head? I know thats a work of art but something is definitely missing.....Happy WW and thanks for stopping by:)
Hi Jams - When I saw the photo I was going to ask you if you thought they would ever be returned to Greece, but I see you have answered the question in your comment above. I am among those who would like to see the Elgin marbles returned to their country of origin.Happy WW.
Too bad they didn't have rebar back in the day. This poor soul along with Venus de Milo, could've used some support with the extremities!You'll have to excuse me - I've got election burn out...~~~Blessings~~~
marvelous work of arts...I salute! Happy WW! thanks for dropping by.:)
Photos like that always make me sad. Masterworks of antiquity so badly damaged. I can only wish to see them as the artist completed them.
I have seen a lot of these in Greece ! They are all damaged. It's a pity !
Interesting piece of art, Jams. Past, present location and discussion about the future makes it even more interesting, if at all possible!
That's a beautiful statue. I love that it's in B/W too.
hey, we DO have a president. Thanks for celebrating with us yanks. Happy WW
This really reminds me of "Winged Victory." Lovely sculpture.Thanks for dropping by for my early Wordless Wednesday.
You always seem to find the most intriguing work of art/pic for WW. Every Wednesday I look forward to your WW post.Toia
