This statue stands in front of our house on a huge cement birdbath filled with a creeping sedum. I love it because it looks as if he is trying to encourage a kiss out of the fair maiden. Although luscious in color, this picture is about a chase. Do you see her skirt in his hand? She, acting all coy and innocent, don't we all know better. We all know she slowed down so he could catch her :)
