A stop for art


It's easy to forget the little works of beauty that are everywhere in Helsinki. I stroll past this statue, usually out of breath, once a week on my way to class at Lastenklinikka.

I finally inspected the Dainades statue, condemned to perpetual labout, the details of their expressions and posture is in more detail than I'd previously noticed.

I've never stopped before, usually I crane my neck in appreciation and trip on the cobbled stone path that runs past it. It's very often raining as I go past, if not snowing - perhaps it's something about Wednesdays?
