323. Cement or Concrete

Across the street from the State Capital Building is an insurance company with this statue carved into the cement blocks.  I guess at one point this statue had no clothes on and it offended many people so later they added the (as I see it) Star Trek clothing…

  1. Amazing what they can do with concrete, isn’t it? Nice capture. I like the vignette effect.

  2. Ha ha, some people can find things to get annoyed about everywhere. Great shot.

  3. Hi Tammy,
    Awesome shot!! It’s amazing what people get upset about. I think it’s beautiful! Have a great day!

  4. That’s really funny! One of the Popes did that to some of Michaelangelo’s paintings; but I didn’t know it still happened in the modern era! It’s a fascinating scuplture. The clothing doesn’t leave much to the imagination, does it?

  5. Super shot for this theme! Some people eh?

  6. This is a really cool statue and an absolutely beautiful capture of it.

  7. Finally catching up and I see I’ve missed a lot of good photos here. Very nice architectural series at the end. I really like that long hallway.

  8. How odd, it does look like star trek uniforms. The parents’ eyes look like they would like to roll them at the prudes…

  9. I don’t think everybody got clothing! Or else the kids just won’t keep theirs on! 😉

  10. Unusal choice of material for such a statue…but it suits the family in their very special non-clothes 🙂

  11. Its absolutely stunning, very Romanesque. It’s like the kind of thing you would see if one of the old great empires was still around today!

  12. The Attorney General dope did it to the Scales of Justice in Washington – the guy from Missouri who couldn’t beat a dead guy but got appointed by Bush. Anyways, love the picture and the PJs on the parents. How dumb are people.

  13. Really interesting! Makes you wonder what they would do if they had David or Venus there!
