Do Cherubs Pontificate?

I was glad to be able to draw a statue that didn't require me to add a fig leaf. This cherub lives on the Pont Alexandre III , a bridge that's commonly thought of as the fanciest bridge in Paris and that's surely saying something. This exuberant display of opulence includes gilding, winged horses, Art Nouveau lamp posts and sculptures of nymphs and cherubs ... like this little fellow. Balancing precariously all these years has done wonders for his six pack.

  1. I will never forget the first time I saw this bridge! It is absolutely beautiful. Your drawing does justice to the bridge and the cherub's six pack. Now you tell me how to get those abs!
