Title of the artwork: “Among the Furrows”
Artists: Pierre Bourdelle
I can’t begin to tell you how long I spent waiting for a perfect photo of the front of this building. Surely this post office is not always this busy I kept saying to myself as I stood across the street waiting, and waiting and waiting. I’m glad I waited and I’m satisfied with the photos I did get.
As I was standing there I was also contemplating why I needed all the cars and people to out of the pictures. As you can see there are two very large tress that obstructs the front of the building anyway. But I waited and that some times that’s just how it goes.
My wife and son were so bored they went for a walk around the downtown area and found a nice park across the river.
I’m intrigued with the different style of this mural. I noticed the sharp angles and boxy like look to it. At least that is what sticks out in my mind when I view it.
What do you think of this mural and building? Please comment and share below.
