Statue - young Bob


I struggled to find a statue that I hadn't covered before for today's theme, there are many pieces of sculpture, but few statues to be found.  Earlier this year I published a photo another part of this statue, young Robert's father Steve Irwin.

This is part of Silvio Apponyi's marble memorial to Steve, and features father and two children holding a baby crocodile.

The photo was taken on New Year's Day, but young Robert, although "a chip off the old block" hadn't scored quite as many kisses as his dad.

That is such a lovely shot!

How fabulous is this - adore the lipstick - hardly surprising on such an angelic face.

It seems to me to be a bit weird having a public statue of kids who are still alive. Especially kids who are already marketed with such gusto.

Nice shot though!

Yes Cara, although the thing was erected in a bit of a knee jerk I suspect not long after Steve's demise.

I'm not sure how I feel other than to recognise its kitschness, like a garden statue in an odd location, it has a sort of funereal note about it which with the passing of time may change.

Technically and photographically I really like this. The story behind it creeps me out a bit.
