The Burghers of Calais 

This is a detail of one sculpture in a set of six that comprise The Burghers of Calais by Auguste Rodin.  It was photographed in Memorial Court of the Main Quad of Stanford University.  I tried getting all six statues in the frame at once but discovered that by concentrating on only a portion of a single figure I was able to capture a far more dramatic image.  The Burghers of Calais is part of the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts collection Stanford University.  Memorial Court is open to the public 24/7.
