The statue does look off balance if you consider the base, but looking at aceman's attached image on post#29, he drew a vertical line from the base to the torso, that there is the center of gravity.

The shoulder/chest is leaning on the left but the neck/head is leaning towards the right to balance it.

I do agree that even if that is a statue, there is nothing wrong with coloring her like a floosy aunt, base or no base.

Maybe the statue is the camerman's prop.

I was thinking the same thing "why is everyone looking in different directions?"

You would think they would all be looking at the bride.

Sorry to have missed the statue discussion. I've also been wondering who/what that woman with no arms could be.

Thanks for all the information.

Lorraine

Just because you can draw a straight line between two objects, doesnt mean they are connected

No, it does not. The line just illustrates the center of gravity. Okay, maybe the next thing you will say is "Just because you can draw a straight line between two objects, doesn't mean it's the center of gravity....."

I give up, I have no answer to that.

Too funny -

here we have a bride and groom - yet our center of attention is the "special relative" ! LOL

I just can't wait to see what everyone does with her.

I think this has become the BEST challenge yet.

But disconnecting the two objects does create two new problems - a big grand base supporting nothing, and a floating statue with nothing under it. The center of gravity does appear to run up close to her ear, which would mean most of that very heavy head might balance the rest of the bust.

Makeovermagic,

I went back to the LOC and retrieved the original that you posted.
I think we all agree it is not a person. But it is not a statue either:
it is a sculpture of a bust on top a pedestal.

The reason why it doesn't seem to align with the column is because the base is offset to right, the chest offset to the left and the head to the right.

This is a different wedding and this image has a different pedestal but the room is the same.

If you want to see the complete stereograph:

It's a different pedestal/base alright. The sculpture is at a more awkward angle than the first one. Ohh...this is giving me a headache

Does anybody have an idea when this photo was taken?
