Very nice. The details are clear and the sculpture stands out nicely against the background.

Background is a stucco wall with an overhanging roof that made for a nice graduation of light.

I just wished to see just a little more of this sculpture which appears as a bust at present. Could you give some information about it. Did you take it from an art gallery? I doubt if it is a Demeter ??

Actually, it is part of a large group, apparently some kind of Bacchinalia, worshipping the God of wine.

My wife took this shot, in which you can see the head and body of the figure I posted, on the bottom right.



It is part of a fountain, in front of a shopping area in the Country Club Plaza district of Kansas city. There are many such statues and fountains in the area.

That's very nice shot of a beautiful group, Barbarian. Why didn't you post it before? Please pass my congratulation to your wife. So, the lady we see above is a Bacchante or Maenad from a Bacchinalia...Good job.
I liked that and would like to see further of similar fountains you mention.
The Place where Dionysos was born is an hour's drive from where I live :-)

Unfortunately, it's still cold there, and many of the fountains are not working, which limits their visual appeal. I happened to see several, though, and a few sculptures.



This is the seahorse fountain, near the state line. As I said, they aren't much to see when they aren't running.

The pictures in your later three posts are all nice, especially the second one, Poseidon is my favourite along with the Dionysos and the maenads group you sent before.
At the first sight it seems to require a pedestal to stand out, but on second thought the plants serve as the sea waves through which Poseidon and his chariot drawn by the black horses emerge. Thanks for sharing
