Real/Fake at Getty Villa (2 things challenge)

I first thought I'd post a real vs. fake sculpture - but the museum visitors were just so "real", and the building, since it's a replica, can be considered "fake".

Very clever - I really like the top shot in particular!

Bibi said...

Yes, the top shot is a really good one! The lower one is good, too, and makes me think of chimps grooming each other! :<)

The pattern on the stockings is a knock-out and catching the two patterns together is really kool.

The bottom image is so full of pathos and so all too familiar ...

Ooh, I love both of these! The patterns and colors in the top one are really captivating. The bottom one makes you wonder what these kids are up to.

I was just talking about this place the other day. I purchased a book called The Color of Life "Polychromy in Sculpture". It's the work from a show that was at the "little" Getty from March through June of 2008. Did you see it? It dealt with the sculpture of antiquity. More precisely, how such sculpture would have looked like in it's day based on the fragments of pigment that's survived the ages. A kind of "before" and reconstructed "after". It's fascinating.

Like Julie, I like the combination of the two patterned products. Neat!

Thank you for your visits to Villigen. I hope to see more of you there, and Palos Verdes here in 2009! Best wishes!
