Allegory of Night

My latest treasure finally arrived on my doorstep!  By way of Treillage, a favorite shop in NYC.



This terracotto plaque based on Bertel Throvaldsen's work (a Danish sculptor who spent most of his life in Italy 1789-1838) expresses so well that time of early evening that I love so much. The day is almost done, the house is beginning to quiet and there are sleepy babies on my shoulders.  


Hung in the foyer along the path I take every night as we head to bed.  It's my memento of this special time.


Mr. Webb...who would rather be
climbing a deer stand this time of year than a step stool.


Good night.
