  1. This is quite a find! I wonder what's growing on that angle. How funny that it looks like pins stuck in a voodoo doll.

  2. He looks a little the worse for wear, but being an angel is a tough job. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  5. What an amazing statue -- even full of "pins"!! Terrific post for the G Day and incredible captures as always. I, too, was first reminded of a voodoo doll! Hope your week is going well, Yoshi! Enjoy!

  10. Gosh that sure makes an impression! I guess the spikes are to keep the birds away or is there another meaning?

  12. Brilliant photo! The Nixalite on the statue looks like a cross between porcupine quills and rays from heaven.

  15. I love how in order to protect statues like this they put these spikes in. Great shot though!

  16. Calling by from Italy via Outdoor Wednesday to visit another participant. It is so sad that they have to put pigeon spikes on such a beautiful statue.

  20. That was really unusual. Someone said the thing growing was Nixalite so I'll have to google it.

  21. A pigeon would dare not land on that statue!

  22. oh my what a beautiful statue but a bit unusual as there is no color

  23. It isn't easy being an angle, especially out in the elements as this one seems to be!!!

  24. The spikes add another dimension to the sculpture, doesn't it! Interesting capture.

  25. Spikes probably keep the pigeons off the angel?
