Maybe that Helena launched a thousands ships of people fleeing from her, um, masculine beauty?
My thought exactly!
Bob... and Damien:I'm wondering if perhaps she's supposed to be the personification (per-sand-ification?) of the city of Helena, Montana.
Times were different I guess! Boy, your beach is a never-ending cornucopia of sorts!!
Jim:The Dalai Lama made an appearance in this collection but he was removed before I got a picture. For some reason, the artist gave him hair down to his shoulders. He looked a lot like Michael Jackson.
Um, perhaps they had yet to invent glasses back then?
Cheapchick:Well, those were the same people who rolled a giant wooden horse inside without a care in the world.
Your sand sculptors are so much more talented than the ones that hang around these beaches. Helen may not be beautiful in sand, but she looks better constructed than the crocodiles the guy here makes.
Sharon:This guy has some interesting (odd?) subject matter, which makes it worthwhile. There are a couple of other artists that are truly gifted (and I've shared them before). I have to get further down the beach and see what they've got going on now. (We've got some really bad crocodiles here, too!)
Helena bonhem carter perhaps?
John Gray:I don't know if you remember my story about Rod Stewart, which was pronounced "rode ess-steeg-wahr" by our Spanish-speaking friends. You should hear them say Helena Bonham Carter.... eh-LAY-nah bone-HAHN car-TEHR. (Don't forget to roll the "r's"
Those sculptures certainly show two hearty-looking people.
Stephen:Give, the position of the arms and she shape of the upper body, I'm not quite sure how Spartacus's body worked.
Tony Curtis as Spartacus; it always sparked a sense of wonder in my wee bitty heart. As for Helena, I think she's seen better days.
Jacquelineand....Tony Curtis actually played the character "Antoninus." But I loved the way he pronounced SPAWH-ta-kuss. The sculptor's Mona Lisa looks quite a bit like Helena... and Spartacus. You'll get to see her one day soon.
The printing of the names is pretty impressive too, given the nature of the media
HK:This guy does do an exceptional job with lettering. Too bad about the faces.
For the life of me, I couldn't figure out what "Spartakus" was gripping so tightly in his left hand...then I noticed the look of Grecian bliss on his face.
Dean:I hadn't even noticed. Really. Now I can't stop looking. But, in that position, I wonder how it can actually be attached anymore.
Dear me! Helena needs a bit more definition, or something refining. She looks quite healthy, but not terribly inspiring.
Kristi:Maybe it was the hairband that did it.
I've heard of the word buxom, but never really understood it until I saw this.
Maybe they are related! :)
Knatolee:I'll have to introduce you to the rest of the family (Cleopatra, Mona Lisa, Neptune...) An awful lot of in-breeding over the centuries (and among the Gods and Royals).
It's always great to hear from you...
