I’ve loved this statue since Christa first posted it on her blog. It’s so very sexy. Everything about the woman depicted is sensual. He’s a bit scary, but I always find him to be somewhat of an afterthought as my eyes are always drawn to her.
The story of the statue is that desires should not be repressed, but rather woven into our lives as a means of transcending them.
What do you think? Repress or embrace our desires?
I was delighted to find this provocative statue lurking in the trees in the Malecon, Guayaquil, Ecuador. I think it’s a sign from The Muses that it’s time to work on The Sculptor of New Hope. I can’t wait to get home and write the last book of the series!
P.S. Ecuador was amazing. I could write three articles about the cuisine alone! Stay tuned for a foodie post.
