This very simple steel sculpture has a name, but it made no sense at all to me so I'll call it "Circled." And I did wait until someone stepped right where I wanted.

I could not locate a label for this statue, but he looks upset, so despite the absence of a fig leaf, I'll wager it is Adam.

Nepalese statue but I don't know the proper name for the god. Three faces as well as multiple arms. I've been told that this isn't a vision of the actual appearance of the god. Rather, it is an attempt to convey the incomprehensible multifaceted complexity of god. It was in a glass case, hence the reflection in one area despite my attempt to find a perspective without such reflections.
