Interesting that these figures were designed to show us their backs. Interesting..... Can't wait to try my hand at them tomorrow. I really need to get there early :-) Or, maybe the light would be better after the walk. We'll see how much energy I have later on.

Good lighting on these figures! I've always thought they looked like they were peering over the tops of the cornice, but closer up they do look kind of sad.
