When it opened up, I was about to laugh out loud. The statue is a wonderful work of art, and it may feel good watching.

Another good clear exposure Ruth but the greens and yellows are pretty bright and luminescent. You could go back into Photoshop elements and use a hue/saturation adjustment layer to put this right. Did you know that you can split the colours and alter/reduce the saturation levels separately?

ha..ha..ha.... This is a funny statue with amazing design and fantastic colors. Wonderful find, Ruthie. Have a nice day. :)

That's a nice piece of work. Henry Moore really looks like one of his own sculptures in front of a bank here in Singapore (except that the sculpture here is of a woman).

The sculptor was imaginative. Was this a self-portrait?

@Julie L. Brown: No, if you click on the link it tells about both the subject and the artist.
