The Dying Gaul

Ricardo pointed out to our sketchcrawl group that The Dying Gaul was on temporary loan to the NGA, and gathered a bunch of us to go sketch it.  While the crowd around the sculpture was deep, everyone found a decent unobstructed view or two to draw from.

It is pretty interesting how unaware people can be of themselves as the step directly in front of another person looking at the same artwork.  I don't mean just those of us sketching (though I will admit it didn't help) but people who will stand so close to the sculpture itself that the 30 visitors behind them can't see a thing. Whatever. At least no one knocked him over...

When enters the picture, the Christian translation were
not convinced that he was the one to rescue them. Perhaps they were looking for a military leader
to conquer the Romans, or maybe they thought he would play by the rules of Jewish law. But no matter
what the reason, the were looking for someone to come redeem themselves, not the Greeks.
