“It’s my ball – and you’re not getting your hands on it”.
Or words to that effect because this footballer looks pretty mean and determined to me.
This is a life-sized wood carving just outside the door of the Dixie Bar (an Irish Pub) in Morzine where I was recently skiing.
It’s a popular bar where a lot of live football (Soccer) is shown. Hence the carving, I presume – but I’ve no idea if the carving is of a particular footballer or if so who that might be. It’s simply a great piece of wood sculpting that deserves to be seen.
Two versions of the image here. I myself prefer the B&W conversion above – I deliberately processed it to produce a gritty contrasty image, because I think that suits the subject. The original colour version is below for comparison. Which one do you like?
