Interesting shot with the moss? A friend of mine mentioned checking out cemeteries, but here in NH, there are many statues in parks. Seems like they have statues for everyone... :) My challenge is to try not to repeat shots of any statues taken before...
Excellent choice Bob :D
Thanks, guys -- it's still the only example I've found:(

I found a newer statue in Manchester, called the Gold Star Mom...

Excellent shots of an interesting sculpture, Paul.
I've seen (and shown here) several "modern art" sculptures. For me, this one conveys an understandable meaning and emotion that I find missing in the more modern representations.

In Whickham, there's the monument to Harry Clasper, rowing world champion and boat-building innovator

Interestingly, behind it is a boat-shaped memorial raised by Harry and his brothers to their mother and other family members...

Well folks, other than the cemeteries and civil war monuments statues are scarce here, and the light was harsh also, this is about all I have to offer.

Nice shot Dave. Didn't know that history of the nursery rhyme.

Very nice set Al. The second one is my favorite - great close up.

I like the set Tom. It is really hard to find many sculptures that are not memorials.

There are several memorials in at Veterans' Park in Manchester for those who fought in various wars. One of the most prominent is the Civil War memorial. It is an obelisk with a plaque that has the inscription:

"IN HONOR OF
THE MEN OF MANCHESTER
WHO GAVE THEIR SERVICES
IN THE WAR WHICH
PRESERVED THE UNION OF THE STATES
AND
SECURED EQUAL RIGHTS TO ALL UNDER
THE CONSTITUTION
THIS MONUMENT IS BUILT
BY
A GRATEFUL CITY."

Around the obelisk are statues for each of the services recognized...

Al - Your theme got me out of the house with the camera this morning, thereby making yours a most successful CS! Here are a few snaps of the statuary lining Main Street in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Tom - I like all of these and it seems that you and I had similar ideas regrading Al's theme . . .
I meant to add also, that this theme did get me out, and I paid more attention to the art scattered about at the mall. Usually to cluttered to get a good pic. Looking closer was the first time I had seen the paint brushes in the little girls back pocket, I guess it was a little joke by the sculptor.
