Great holmertz 2022-02-23 6:56

Hello Bev,
This is an interesting end of your short series from the Valley of Saints. Judging from today's main photo these sculptures were all made by skilled and talented artists, but how do they know what saints living more than 1000 years ago actually looked like? Luckily most artists have a vivid imagination!

This wide view, showing several sculptures and people watching them, makes me think a little bit of Easter Island. The WS is interesting too. It doesn't look like a very healthy job to create these sculptures. In spite of that both photos today are highly enjoyable.
Best regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: Authenticity!

Thank you, Gert.

I smiled myself when I learned about the rules for creating these statues.
There cannot be any really hard and fast rules for some look like people from many centuries ago and some look to be dressed in quite modern attire.

I suppose, as long as you name your sculpture after a saint, you can interpret the figure in any way you want!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
