Stone cold dames

A late night walk, a day or so ago, and I came across these cold ladies in the yard of an auction house. Antiques are a big part of the New Orleans economy. In fact, Magazine Street, which mostly escaped the wrath of Katrina, has turned into a bustling thorough fare with dozens of antique shows and dozens more art galleries. I drove it just yesterday, I saw about 7 empty store fronts along the whole street -- 4 of those had just been renovated or were being renovated. One of the others was a recent fire. I'll have to explore that on this blog one of these days.

They appear to be having a conversation.

I have been an artist all of my adult life and done everything from tiny oil paintings to stone sculpture and one thing always bothered me. I never found a rational answer to it either. I hear ideas but nothing factual.

Why did the artist expose one or more breasts?

On my Blog, I show to you the “Right Street”, one of the principal streets of Martel. Cavity it is very except right-hand side, it turns in all the directions. Also have in your city, of the streets with a name in contradiction with the street? (Street example of the restaurants without any restaurants).
Good Day
