at the midpoint

somewhere between actually working and actually resting. This blog is random but includes authentic ball-jointed dolls, figurative sculpture, dance, smatterings of astronomy, archaeology, anthropology and biology, light dustings of music, literature and politics, and very little personal bullshit. Also, anthropogenic climate disruption is a real thing and I will post about it, especially if it pertains to California or the Pacific.
I am also a big fan of 19th century European sculpture. This photo is also from our 2008 Paris trip.  
"The First Secret Confided to Venus" is in the Louvre. It is not a popular piece and it is off in a corner at the end of the wing, but the natural light in those rooms is very good. I was actually on my way to the Barye room, but she completely captured me. Isn’t she wonderful? This piece was exhibited in the Salon of 1839 by François Jouffroy before it was acquired for the royal collection.
