Personal/unpersonal reflections

Here’s something you might find if you take the right short cut going from the Ponte Vecchio to the Duomo in Florence.

It’s fun watching people do a double take as they see these human forms with animal heads climbing walls and performing trapeze acts.

  1. Hmmm not sure what to make of that parade…feeling if I saw it in person it might be different, either that or give me nightmares! ha! And not sure it thats because they are flying around naked or because they are 1/2 animal! 🙂

    I did see these last year…but had no idea there was symbology behind the various creatures heads. I walked by them each time I went down Via Apostoli to see if my favorite little church was open. I finally stopped into the nearby hotel and was told the churchman who had the keeping of it for many years had died. I am wondering if it has been opened up again?

    Much nicer than Anthony Gormley’s range of “bodycast” art in England – on Crosby beach, and many other places. Those are really nice little figures trotting up the walls. Thanks, Yvonne, for another “Good ‘un”.

    • I saw them when I was here for a couple of days, last year, and was pleasantly surprised to see them still here (but looking a touch weather worn) this year.

  11. I did a post on this last year. I thought it was to come down in January 2015. They must have decided to extend it.
