.On a rare occasion, the little statues that adorn people’s gardens actually add beauty to their surroundings. These two, although unlike in their age, do portray similar feelings. Both are in contemplative state of mind, absorbed in their own secret thoughts, and do not pay any attention to the viewer. And precisely through their quietness – the old man’s reflection on his book, the young girl’s meditation on her thoughts – they catch the eye of the passerby, make him stop in his way, and allow him to think for a moment. On what? Well, that really depends on a person, but in our over-busy lives the opportunity to halt for a moment and realize one’s own thoughts is infrequent and soul – satisfying.
