The Kiss

Here's the much awaited Kiss. Wonder if this is what you expected? This sculpture is found at the basement of the international terminal of the airport. Two matchsticks in 'embrace' and their heads kissing. The dining area belongs to Cesar´s Food Market & Pizza

Not exactly like Rodin, but I like it.

I admire the phantasy of the sculptress not really the sculpture. I will think about other subjects who could kiss like kissing vaccuum cleaners, kissing lamps, kissing Teapots etc. We also have some strange sculptures here in Brussels and you have to look at the description to find out what it is ! (lol)

Interesting shot and narration :)

It could also be the fire, or the lightning.
Now maybe that's what a kiss is supposed to be.

I've seen this sculpture many times during my several travels to Helsinki, (visiting my parents, polish diplomats). It remainds me of very pleasent moments I'd spend in Finland, and places I'll always like to return to... Nice blog, keep it going...
