Hahnemuhle etching 140Lbs Not


   I've noticed this statue many times, the profusion of pigeons that surround it, the benches with people eating their sandwiches on a sunny day. The image I've chosen shows four peole, two in the foreground one with the Sunday Papers, the other with a book, the two figures in the background are not talking to each other. It's a scene of contemplation.
