The statue of Laocoön and His Sons:


One of my favorites. This is a true work of art. Every time I see it, I get euphoric chills. There is something about it that gets to the core of your being, something so profound about it. The statue expresses the sensation of pain so perfectly; every single part of it conveys agony, yet we find it to be beautiful.
It embodies the spirit of Greek tragedy; affirming life as it is, finding beauty in the horror of existence. This piece, truly, manifests silent grandeur.

Just imagine the beauty which can come from marble and the imagination.

Such perfection.

Look at this swan. Look at the magic which is being created by his silent reflection and solitude.
This is a Perfect Moment of Life Affirmation.

This to me denotes Silent Grandeur. Even the colors bespeak Silent Grandeur.

Speak for yourself. I feel nothing from it, other than slight disgust.

However, your avatar is quite delightful I think, magnificent even.

The statue of David and the Buddha has comedic value, therefore value.

Lol how is the David comical? I can understand how the Buddha could be construed as such ( Laughing Buddha ), but not sure how the David could be interpreted as so...

One thing you should know about jokes is explaining a joke, kills the joke.

Beautiful. Just give me a cup of coffee and I could sit there for hours - as long as I was alone. What an ambience.

If they could only speak but I suppose that they do if we're really listening.
