guardian angel


This huge angel by Niki de Saint Phalle protects all travelers passing through the Zurich Hauptbahnhof (Zurich main train station).

How considerate.

Not sure if it is the same piece but I took this image in San Diego in 1999 - http://moworldphotos.blogspot.com/2005/04/angel-1999.html.
The colors look slightly different.

John-wow, that's interesting. But I think they are two different pieces. your're right--the colors on their 'dresses' are slightly different. and my 30 second google research indicates that the one in the train station has been there since 1997.

Thanks for your visit and for pointing this out to me.
I really like her sculptures, so full of life.
This one's pretty amazing; love those wings.
