Golden Statue


This is a picture I took a while ago, but forgot I had. This is the top of a statue in memory of the sailors who perished on the Maine. The statue sits at the entrance to Central Park at the corner of Central Park West and Central Park South. (The sign you see in the background is for the Essex Hotel on Central Park South.)

cette statue est majestueuse, j'aime beaucoup les statues autour de central park (avec une preference pour celle en hommge à Duke Ellington). Cette statue est digne de se trouver dans un chateau.

I Agree with Oliver. Seem me worthy of the gardens of Versailles.

Very pretty, what is it made of? Brass?

Central Park offers such great opportunities for clicking :)

Statues from that era are so much prettier than the ones they make today.

I little washed out except for the right side. I like framing it against the sky.

Hi everyone, thanks for visiting.

Greg, I'm afraid I have no idea what it's made of. I'll have to look into it.

This is interesting, I just read something about the Maine less than 30 minutes ago. A subject I haven't thought of in years since school, and now twice in half and hour. I really like this photo. The light and colors of the statue are amazing.
