LOL, Louis, I kind of like the museum. I also like its contrast with the sphinxes and how everything is surrounded by lush greenery.

I know, I can have weird tastes too. ;)

J Bar a dit…

Great statues but you're right about the monstrosity. :)

I'm in favor of restorations, even if it involves Egyptian sphinxes in California!

Vagabonde a dit…

It’s an interesting statue – it looks to me as a statue made for an Hollywood movie, that type of thing.

Weird looking pussycat. Someone break her nose please, would look much better.

Clueless in Boston a dit…

Certainly not a traditional looking sphinx. I agree with BSquared that it looks a little like Moses, er I mean Charlton Heston.

Hi Louis. Your moon shot is beautiful.
Sorry, I didn't have time to do a bridge post. I am now in Tiberias for a week or two of digging, away from my computer.
