I love paintings of children, or figurines depicting children...I've shown you some of them in previous blog postings. So when, through a series of events, this pair came into my possession, I have displayed them with pride. And I didn't even need to spray paint them white!! Imagine.

I think they are adorable. In the past when I've seen this pair, I thought it was a boy and a girl, a bust silhouette of Pinkie and Blue Boy, but hhhhmmmm, now I dunno. One of my sisters has a pair, maybe we could get them all together for a visit! Well, that was just a thought. And I'd just love to know what was going through the creative mind of the person who originally thought to sculpt an image and stop it right there...we'd seen enough. Maybe if I was the one with the hammer and chisel in hand pinging away at a piece of marble I'd understand, huh?

We're all a work in progress. Can't stop short!
Happy Tuesday!
Love, Rachel

They're adorable. I would imagine the sculptor worked from drawings. Even in that day and age, can you imagine little kids sitting still?
