Manifestations of Beauty: Rodin’s Lovers Bathed in Afternoon Light

 Rodin’s Lovers Bathed in Afternoon Light


I’ve always loved Rodin, ever since I first read about his “Fallen Caryatid” in Robert Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land (a great book!).

This is a photo I took at the Rodin Museum in Paris,a great museum in a former hotel with a park behind and a wonderful place to visit. I have several others I will post later hopefully!

Moment and Light. The sun was pouring in from a window providing magical lighting for this statue of lovers.  I’ve provided 3 versions of the same photo.  How such beauty can be carved from stone, and how lighting can add to such exquisite beauty is beyond my understanding. I simply wallow in the beauty of it all and am so grateful to have memorialized this moment.
