A handsome lad, no doubt thinking "next time she'll put a ring in my nose"

A great bust of a handsome man. I love your composition with the two dark windows framing the bust. And, I like your funny ideas about "what statues are thinking." You might see that idea showing up on my blog sometime . . .

I can well understand that by now the guy is fed up of being represented as the one who was hung...
God bless you!

What an unusual monument with him wearing the noose.

I think he's also wondering what happened to his arms and the rest of his body!
