la neige fait découvrir la statue d'une maniéré différente, on dirait une nouvelle œuvre.
Snow discovered the statue in a different way, it looks like a new work.

The whole series of white 2009 photos is awesome, but this one is so fantastic! Great work!

Mother nature has added to the weight of the world it seems. Great shot.

Oh he has the weight of the world and its snow - poor guy. A super shot!

Sometimes you see statues, such as little nymphs and depictions of "Spring," that look so out of place in the snow -- but this one is only enhanced by it. Very nice.

It is a metaphor for our cold harsh heavy times.
