That's a beautiful statue, and a beautiful shot

OUI belle photo! l'albâtre est beau comme matériau, c'est une variété de gypse effectivement c'est très beau !
Ah, beautiful! Glad you kept the green; it only adds to the ambiance. This is haunting.
I love the delicate folds on the dress of stone :)
Les sculptures rencontrées auprès des tombes sont souvent admirables. Elles datent, la plupart du temps, des années 1900, et reflètent toujours la nostalgie, la beauté de la femme, et une grande tendresse.http://richardmoisan.blogspot.com/
This is where I am off to today. Enjoy your voyage to the Cathedral.Thank you for hosting last night. I so enjoyed meeting you all. I shall send an email for follow up. Thank you, Genie.
She is beautiful and has a very Pre-Raphaelite look about her.Best wishes! xx
Like FDW, I immediately thought of a preraphaelite view! How poetic and romantic!
It is a beautiful statue.
This beautiful lady statue is in a cemetery? Too bad.
She is so.. very serene and elegant. pleased you left the green foilage in.
Beautiful sculpture, impressive expression, she looks sad.Léia
The little touches of green remind me of hope springing eternal. Beautiful, Genie.
She really does seem forlorn. Especially with that wreath in her hand. Recalling a lost lover, perhaps.
I love funerary statues - this one is EXCELLENT. So mournful,yet full of grace and beauty. Thank you, Genie... and the deep green in the background is perfect!
Well done. Good decision -- I like the green in the background.
Thanks for sharing this with us -- a beautiful work of art.I've been out of town. Just now catching up. Have a pain au chocolat pour moi.
I am so enjoying your photos of a city I long to see some day. This statue is wonderful. I would love to draw her. Have a beautiful weekend and thanks for such lovely posts
She is very pretty!
I agree about the contrast of colour lovely image.
ah, chere genie, we were on the same page profiling cemeteries this week!! what a lovely sculpture....
I'm going with the consensus here—the green just adds to the melancholy. Wonderful, Genie!
She looks so young and lovely and so sad.
Brings tears to your eyes because you can feel her sorrow and loneliness. Glad you left this one in color!
Beautifully captured my friend. I must go back here. In think mr Wilde needs an extra kiss :)
oh this is parfait!!! You're right of course. THe green adds a lovely background.V
What a beautiful shot! I looks great in color!
We had a wonderful day taking the train to Chartres and seeing 3 churches. We spent from 9:30 until almost 2 at the Cathedral, taking the 300 steps up to the bell tower. We had planned for a night shoot but the apartment was so inviting after our long day that we stayed in eating cheese, baguettes, and having a glass of vin rouge. We downloaded all of our photos and recharged batteries for an exciting day tomorrow!Bisous,Genie
It is always amazing to me how all of these wonderful sculptors could elicit from the stone such likenesses to flowing fabric, soft alabaster skin, and such delicate features...the patience, talent and skill that was required astounds me...Lovely photo Genie!!!
What a lovely statue. The sculptor's inspiration must have been a very pretty woman.
