This week, Carmi’s Thematic Photographic prompt is “Travel Travel”.
The first two shots are from a trip to Paris in 2005…
This is from the Musée Rodin de Paris:
Identified for me by Loraine, who says: “[This is] Rodin’s “Call to Arms”, or Fierce Angel as [your post on] Flickr refers to it. And this is from when Rodin modelled Project for a Monument to the Defense of Paris in 1879 when a competition was held for a memorial to the defense of Paris during the Franco-Prussian War. In this sculpture, the Genius’, or Spirit of War, wings push downward, beating the air, and the warrior, head thrown back, sinks slowly to the ground. This Angel, is screaming her fury and tries to awaken the warrior, who has fallen in battle to save Paris.”
