Welcome to my World!

These are Riot Police in Kiev during the Orange Revolution.  These guys had to be wondering if they were on the right side of the barricades! 


This was cropped from a larger picture sent to me by my Ukrainian friend, Wolodymyr (Vlad) Ivanov.
Vlad is a very talented sculptor who learned his craft in the old USSR.  His medium is steel and he uses different grades of steel to achieve different visual effects.  He has a particular fondness for mythological themes such as we are familiar with from ancient Greece.  He loves horses and Dragons and does some wonderful renditions of them.  A particularly special project for him was when he sculpted the dragons that adorn the gates to Anne McCaffrey's estate in Ireland, Dragonhold-Underhill.

Vlad is also the sculptor who took the inspiration for his masterwork, Orpheus and Eurydice, from my poetry that you find in Going Without Peggy.
