Bored Angels

Bored putti, via Calzabigi, LivornoInspired by Fort Lauderdale Daily Photo and his relentless pursuit of “strange things that people put in front of their homes”, I have been canvassing Livorno for the same stuff.Bored putti, via Calzabigi, LivornoIt's not easy here, too many apartment buildings, but we already got some proud lions and, this time, some bored angels.Bored putti, via Calzabigi, LivornoI know that they look more like “putti” than angels, but I didn't like “bored putti” as a title...

Put them in the dishwasher! That'll cheer them up.

Antjas said...

Ahh, I think the top one is cute. I might even put it in my garden somewhere.

Jacob said...

They look more like little imps than angels...and I think the are collaborating together on some sneaky, snarky tricks to play on the inhabitants of Livorno...

So, you'd better watch out!

nobu said...

Those are so lovely.

James said...

Maybe they wouldn't be so bored if they were moved around every now and then. :) They are kind of cute.

What does putti means?

@ White Oleander - I've added a link to the post.

Ah, wonderful and sweet little angels. Love it! Keep looking ...although I don't think you'll find any of B SQUARED's cigar store Indians.

Hilda said...

The first one does look a little bored, but the second one looks more like he's wishing the first one would notice him!

Steffe said...

This reminds meof my visit to the weird garden! But these looks more normal.

Andreea said...

I like them, they look so cute.

Julie said...

I like them too, especially the angle of that second photograph!

Thank you so much for your burst of comments yesterday, VP. It is so very much appreciated.

Ilse said...

They don't look bored to me. They look sweet & contemplative.

Ellie said...

No! You made it look bored on the second photo. They are just dreaming of their future mischievousness :)

Nice. This post makes me smile. I'll have to look up "putti." I would have called them angels, too.

tapirgal said...

So putti are young cherubs??? Oh, well. Great post.

Vogon Poet said...

@ Julie - It was a real pleasure, I got lost in those places...
@ Ilse, Ellie - You're both probably right...

JM said...

They look lovely in your photos!

Tinsie said...

They're not bored... just deep thinkers ;-)
