Sculpture by the Dallas Music Hall. The sculpture represents Texas, the mountains, the plains, the Gulf of Mexico, and clouds coming in from the Gulf.



Supposedly, the seated figure represents mountains. (not a lot of that in Texas) the figure just below, the plains, the reclining figure at the left, the Gulf, and the winged figure above represents Gulf clouds coming in.

Well captured my friend! I quite liked thebaroque rendering in the sculpture group whichmakes the observer to walk around it for a true perception...

That was a baroque innovation? One thing I like about this forum is, I learn something new, every time I visit.

Btw, I'm happy to say what you say also applies to me : ) Again, I should say I have always admired your taste in capturing sculpture groups and architecture!
