'We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars."

Hard to believe he's all made of Marble, a true craftsman working here on Oscar Wilde.

What a statue. Everything from the wry expression, the colour, the relaxed posture. Not too many statues are lounging on a rock. Now that is a work of art.

For many years...and without giving proper credit, I have used Oscar Wilde's famous line..."I can resist everything except temptation."

BTW, great photograph.

I tell you it's worth taking a wee moment or two to have a look at some of his phrases, as so many are used regularly by folk who are totally unaware of the originator.
