Amy took me to see the Land Run statues in Oklahoma City which were literally larger than life. A very poignant reenactment of those wanted to stake their claim on unassigned land. Definitely click on the above link to learn more.
When I was at the Getty in LA last week we went to a bronze sculpture exhibit; a pain staking, multi-faceted process for even a small piece. I can't even begin to imagine the time it took to create each piece of this monument, which was so detailed-oriented and one that captured emotion and movement.
