Waiting for their men

This statue is found on the foreshore of the harbour in Trieste. It represents women waiting for their men to come home from the war. They are keeping their hands busy with sewing during this worrying time.

Years and centuries go by, and still women wait.

    How moving! I’ve never seen statues that have touched me these in your photos. I’m sure if I saw them with my own eyes I would be teary.

    What great photos of such a wonderful statue.

    I do hope you had a terrific time (but I bet it’s nice to be ‘home’)
