protection contre le vol ? ou les pigeons ?

I'll assume the netting is against birds. I saw something similar today...

Lovely shots!

Pigeons!! Flying rats!

She looks all the more demure, behind that little gating! She has serene presence.

Too bad they have to put a screen up.

Bob Crowe said...

Does she need that fence to maintain the condition?

Bergson said...

mais pourquoi les enfermer ?

Well spotted, and very well protected!

Those pesky pigeons :) still, she's nice and safe here.

Lowell said...

She appears in so many places in so many forms ... but here she is clearly protected from the elements or predators. And right above a door of a building that appears to have no religious significance at all. Hmmm.

Re your comment on Ocala: Our Oak trees are too often filled with Spanish Moss. 'Tis yucky stuf.

It is a pity to see that netting, but I guess it would be much worse without!

RedPat said...

I guess the netting keeps her clean and safe. Such an odd place for a statue.

Halcyon said...

A very nice detail!

Loree said...

The statue looks medieval but maybe it's just a reproduction.

Stuart said...

Nice shot ! She'll never get out of there.

Christ, don't fence me in, please!
