Sculptures as Expression of Soul Life

April 2, 2015

“These statues were like myself full of a thought, for ever about to burst forth as a bud, yet silent in the same attitude.  Give me to live the soul-life they express.”
— from The Story of My Heart by Richard Jeffries with commentary by Brooke Williams and Terry Tempest Williams

While in Colorado, my brother and sister-in-law took me to the Benson Sculpture Park in Loveland, Colorado.  This amazing outdoor sculpture garden showcases well over a hundred pieces, many realistic, but some abstract and some quite whimsical.  It was a lovely place to stroll and quietly marvel at art.  Here are a few more photos:
