Kiss Kiss

I spent 3 hours walking around the Scottish National Gallery and my foot is killing me, but I really wanted too see this before it was gone in February.

Auguste Rodin’s The Kiss. This is the second of three full scale marble versions.

I wasn't going to go to Edingburgh to see it since my foot and jaw are killing me, but John said I would probably in the future want to kick myself if I didn't go, so off we went, and not a very nice day to go. It was pouring rain and windy the whole way there and back :/

It is very impressive to see in person, weighs 3.5 tons o.0 how they got it in the building I have no idea. Really liked being able to walk all the way around the sculpture and see every part of it.

The muscle definition is amazing, I can't imagine the work that goes into making something like this. Glad I did go see it, and glad I could take some photos of it.
