Weekly Photo Challenge: Life imitates art

life imitates art

In the late 1970s or early 1980s my parents bought 3 bronze sculptures by Ken Kendall that made up a group of 3 children.   It was an interesting work because no matter how you positioned the  3 individual pieces they seemed to interact with each other.  The oldest was a girl, then a boy in the middle and a younger girl.  As that was the birth order of me and my siblings, we pretty quickly each identified with one of the figures.

A few years ago we each got for Christmas a smaller figurine of the sculpture which in our childhood imagination was “us”.

Taken and posted for the Weekly Photo Challenge theme of life imitates art.
