Bad Photography Sunday: Statues

I like statues.  They talk to me.  The sculptor wants to say something.  The people who authorized them, and placed them have a message as well.

A couple have been added at Marywood since my departure a long time ago.  Saint Casimir is above.

Below is a little history of the Memorial Commons-- where the Motherhouse was destroyed in a spectacular February 1971 fire.
The statues here have a purpose and are appropriate for the setting-- unlike the recent additions to Courthouse Square in Scranton where the statues were used for needless decoration.
