Stand By Your Statue Of Liberty...



I feel at this early stage that it is important to introduce you to a fellow willing imitator and key statue brother, Mr John van de Poll, my housemate and fellow eager traveller for the last seven years or so...

Many posts over the coming months will feature photos of John, more often than not armed with props! As in this shot.

The Statue of Liberty is one of the most renowned statues in the world. A gift of international friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States, the torch she carries represents one of the most universal symbols of political freedom and democracy.

In this meticulous re-enactment, John provides a 21st century twist, whereby the torch he carries represents one of the most universal symbols of weak and fizzy beer.

I still think the French should have taken it back when the US invaded Iraq.

That said - it's a lovely example of your art.

Bravo!
