It is stunning indeed -- whatever/whoever!! I love it! Enjoy your weekend!!HugsSylvia
ENSDAD: Ecole Nationale superieure des ARts decoratifs (High National school of decorative arts), a kind of Uiversity for Arts.
A very striking and unusual sculpture. I think I shall call her (if indeed it is a "her") Alexandra Snake Charmer.
very interestingHave a nice weekend! :)
Who ever or what ever it is... It's pretty scary to me. I think it must be the snake.
I think it is a modern version of Athena. There are several ancient sculptures of her with a serpent at her feet by her shield. Since she is the goddess of wisdom, it is appropriate decoration for a school. Great find!
I'm with Andy, don't want to spend eternity with a huge serpent at my feet!V
WOW! Now that is a statue! I haven't a clue on what it represents....humm.
Nice one genie...somehow looks a little Egyptian inspired...
Genie, I think the sculpture is called "Hangover."
Malyss is absolutely correct and I believe that this is a new sculpture, perhaps created at the school. I would love to know more about it and the sculptor. It would have been rather ambitious of a student, but possible.Thank you for your comments as I have been overwhelmed with work and not as present on the blogs as I would like. Bises,Genie
I think this website will be very helpful for architecture studentshttp://archidumdum.com/
I see you've already got an answer. I immediately thought of Asclepius, but he isn't usually shown holding a rose (that I'm aware of), but the snake is emblematic. I don't think it's right though. Athena seems a better suggestion.
I can only agree to all the adjectives mentioned here: stunning, striking, modern...God bless you!Cezar
It seems also to be school's symbol, that's all I know.
