Circle of Love

I’m not going to talk about universal love “expressed by all people for all people” as proposed by the on-call “happiness engineer“.

My take on love is the one that perpetuates the cycle of life and makes one feel connected with the universe as shown in the allegoric sculpture, the work of Croatian most renowned sculptor Ivan Meštrović titled the Well of Life. Maybe you recall seeing his work before on my blog.

  1. Lovely interpretation, Paula – and a great title for your post.
    And I like the music – who is it? – I fancy listening to some more


    • Dear Debbie thank you. The voice in the song belongs to our Dalmatian singer Oliver Dragojevic and the cellist comes from famous duo 2 Cellos – Stjepan Hauser (also Croatian). They are world famous. You should look them up.


  2. Yes, I remeber seeing his art here before. My favorite is the last image: nice angle and very cool with the clouds over that beautiful national theatre.


  3. nice sculpture (I still haven’t seen it in person), I specially like the last one with HNK in the background. kh, kh, inzinjer srece… zapalo mi za oko 😉


  4. Well captured well… 🙂

    My faul never visited Croatia, I understand more and more clearly – when you share views from Hrvatska… 🙂
