This sculpture of a dressmaker’s manikin stands on Ottawa St N in Hamilton, known as the fabric and textile district. She is 10′ tall and carved from a solid block of Mountain Rose Granite. Her loose drapery may not be much protection from the ominous sky looming overhead.

  1. A beautiful presentation of a delightful sculpture and mural behind it!

  2. Stunning capture! Love your composition! Such dramatic skies! Hope you have a great weekend, Lesley!


  3. Great – love the sculpture, mural, and the sky!

  4. I think we are sharing the same heavy skies from east to west right now in Canada. The sculpture is fascinating and the drapery so well done it seems as touchable as cloth. 🙂

  5. Wow, beautiful Lesley. It does look as if she might freeze to death though!

    My connection is kind of slow today and thus I read the words of your post before the picture loaded — I couldn’t quite imaagine what this statue would look like. It really is lovely and appropriate for where it is.

  6. What an amusing photo! «Louis» thanks you for the smile!

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog (skywatch). Great statue and it looks like a storm was brewing. I hope you made it out in time.
