Sarasota's World-Famous Sculpture

We've driven past this sculpture many times over the years since we've been vacationing on Siesta Key.  Finally, I took the time to photograph it.

Perhaps you're familiar with the photograph this sculpture replicates.  The joy of this couple when World War II ended is especially poignant in this much larger than life sculpture that towers high overhead along a Sarasota highway.

Don't you just love all that this sculpture says about the importance of love when war wages?  

(You can click twice on the sign to enlarge it.  Let me know if that doesn't work for you and I'll rewrite the words on it for you on another post).

SHOKOOFEH: It's breathtaking to stand at the foot, or I should say at the feet, of the sculpture.

LENORE: Not to worry, my friend. I figured out what you meant without your correction.

Rats, I never thought of touching the forms. Next year, I will!! I'll touch them for both of us until you can get there to do it yourself. How's that sound?
