Heavens Above!

This is a statue of Konstantin Tsiolkovsky. He's sitting casually out the front of the Planetarium at the bottom of Mt. Coot-tha. He was a Russian rocket scientist who is credited with inspiring those who led Russia into space.
I love his posture with hands in his pockets, gazing upwards.

This is a wonderful sculpture, Cara. So casual and laid back and therefore of its time. I love its solidity too ... nicely captured.

Great photo of an interesting statue. Makes me want to see what he is looking at.

Super duper sculpture! If I've said it once, I've said it 1,000 times - I LOVE sculptures!

I like it too! And it's a perfect sculpture for a planetarium.
