Two months ago I posted ‘High Heels’ – a close up of the base of a famous Bronze by Paul Day at St Pancras International Station titled ‘Meeting Place’. Click the link above to read the post or click here to view the image from that post.
As I previously pointed out this magnificent sculpture is commonly known as ‘The Lovers’, and today the camera shifts from feet to faces.
Due to the height of the sculpture and its placement it is not easy to get an unobstructed shot of the entire sculpture and also not easy to view their faces close up. This image is the best I could achieve with the G10 earlier this week, but the angle of view is not especially kind to the couple although I think it is fair to say that from whatever angle they are viewed their features are angular.
But that is part of the modern appeal of this work of art. One thing is certain: there can be no doubt about the couple’s emotional involvement, so clearly evident in this embrace. It’s a sculpture that draws you in, physically and emotionally.
