Rebekah at the Well

in ua •  last month

I believe this to be my namesake. It is a tradition for some families to name their children using names out of the Bible. This is the Biblical character my Mother used to name me, although she chose a more traditional spelling.

The bronze statue: Rebekah at the Well
Artist: David R Young 2005
Location: Sunken Gardens
Photography by me all original taken August 2018

Originally there was a cement statute from the 1930's and due to vandalism it was replaced in 2005 with David R Young's work. If you look closely you can see a few chips on her face. Why people vandalize art is beyond my comprehension.

looks like a nice piece of art surrounded by nature! I'm curious of the symbolism. What is the pour feeding into?

Intriguing @rebeccabe

·

A small waterfall ... hmmm.. now you got me to think I will have to back out and look. I am totally into symbolism. It surrounds us, most are obvious to it. Beautiful place the Sunken Gardens. Flowers, koi fish, trees. Vibration is wonderful. Thanks for your comment.

thank you :)

I also don't innerstand why people vandalize art..it's sad. These are very beautyfull photos @rebeccabe. It's also very sweet to share the personal connection. My mother was going to originally name me after one of her favortie characters from a soap opera lol then my Grandfather suggested the name April...thankfully she went for it :) heheh

Much Love as always!

·

thanks for such a sweet comment. you are all heart energy. Good medicine for sure.

Beautiful photos! 😍

·

thank you

I don't know what, but there is something in the picture of the the feet..hard to describe..smoothing but in motion, peaceful..

·

thanks for noticing .. feet are sacred.. great that you like it

It is a gorgeous piece of artwork and you are right, I don't understand people who feel the need to destroy artwork by vandalizing it. It used to be a tradition to name children after biblical characters, the names of saints or elder family members ie grandparents. The photos are beautiful.

·

I am old...lol
tradition for generations..

Nice photo)) The statue is wonderful!

·

thank you :P

Great shots of such a beautiful sculpture.

·

thank you

These photos are beautiful, and Rebecca is a beautiful name, too :)

·

thank you, nice to meet you
