Your angel piece is really impressive! I'm sure it's also a great tribute to the sculpture - and once again proof of your artistic skills.

Thanks for introducing me to this awesome sculpture. Very elegant piece. It's not your fault if you have to be different, it's the Tallula Syndrome! :)

I'm glad you posted that angel. I believe he has a large one in the UK as well. I passed it on the highway while in England this summer. His angel sculptures are very large and rather jolts you out of your reverie while driving.
