A more popular name for this sculpture is The Lazy Student because he is resting outside a college building. (He is somewhat larger than normal human size; something which is hard to get across in a picture unless you have an actual live person willing to pose with him. On this occasion I didn’t.)

This week – the first week in June – will be the last week of the spring term for a lot of students. Some of them may be dreaming of taking this position next week:
Just resting, and staring at the sky above…

Well, you just keep coming up with the neatest things!!! This one really tickles me. You always get my day off to a good start with either learning or humor!! I somehow knew that he was bigger than a real person, maybe from the little windows in the background? I don't know how, he just seems pretty big. Will he be able to stay or is this just a short visit? Is he part of the festival, and will they all be temporary?

This one is staying. He has already been here for a couple of years.

at the first shot, i thought OH NO now she is taking photos of men in the park. then i realized it was a statue. i like the feet shot best, they are all incredible and you do such a great job capturing all this art. these are things we will never see and now we have seen them through your lens. keep them coming.

That's a great place to have a statue like that. I bet the student wish they had time for laying in the sun. I love the feet but the hands fascinate me more, they look like working mans hands.
