Beautiful sculpture and a nice angle and crop to show off the detail well. Definitely falls into the unusual category. I like that you included a shot of the full sculpture and the info as well - one of the things I do like a lot about DPC is seeing other parts of the world and the interesting things there.

It's definitely unusual, whatever it is. Love the blue.

Now that's different. Must be piece of artwork at a museum? Could be beter lit from the front, but I suspect you only had available light to use. Might be cropped a touch too close for my taste, but you did a good job and I otherwise like it.
