Venlo City Center 4

Central train station of Venlo is a short distance behind me. To the left is the "Peaceful Warrior" and the River Meuse. His pose is conceived to ward off evil.

I love that sculpture. Thanks for sharing it.
Ayush Basu: I liked it too, Michael. I found it commendable that a warrior should adopt a peaceful approach.

Excellent image, Ayush.

Did Evil take a holiday while you were there?
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Ray. While I cannot say if Evil went for a holiday or not, I did have a pleasantly quiet time in Venlo.

Given where he is located I think his mission statement should be changed to warding off water Ayush..
Ayush Basu: Now you reminded me of that wet connection between Droitwich and rains, Chris. Perhaps this sculpture should be loaned over there for a brief while?

it reminds me of a qi gung move... love the sculpture, neat shot
Ayush Basu: Now that you mention it, it does, Elaine. A warrior who has spent some time in the Orient perhaps?
Very nice presentation of this beautiful sculpture Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Richard. I found it beautiful too.
Great composition Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Bill
Love the statue, though I thought it was someone spear fishing.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Mary. I had to look up the internet for the additional info.
Great composition Ayush. let's hope he does the trick
Ayush Basu: I think we could do with more of his kind, Janet. Thank you very much.
Another unusual sculpture.
Ayush Basu: Isn't it? The first time I am seeing a warrior with a peaceful connection, Brian.
He's got evil on the run...
Ayush Basu: Or on the swim, Larry.

It is an interesting statue and concept.
Ayush Basu: Yes, exactly. I think this is my first encounter with a warrior who is taking a peaceful route, CP.

Let;s hope that it works in that case.It's a piece of art that I can appreciate.
Ayush Basu: I agree with you Alan, one does need a huge stretch of imagination to understand what the sculptor was trying to push across.

"Peaceful Warrior"sounds funny but not absurd, it's made me think.
I loved the series of sculptures you've shared!
Ayush Basu: Very kind of you, Petra.
I agree it is not absurd; I think we could do with more of such sculpture.
this is a fantastic sculpture Ayush... he looks fierce...but he comes in peace... i get that....petersmile
