at the gates

I've gotta go shoot something. It's been awhile.

Leftover from Stanford: Rodin's Gates of Hell. This time by daylight.

[Update] Found the little bit of text that I copied down from the placard that lives alongside this baby and thought it was worth noting here:
No other single work of sculpture known to me can so attach itself to a person for life, making constant claims on intelligence, intuition, and feeling and yet remain so fresh, changing as one changes, rewarding age and experience. You don't outgrow The Gates, you grow into them.

~ Scholar Albert E. Elsen commenting on Rodin's Gates of Hell in 1985
