Rushing through the Icoanei Garden area last week I’ve stopped to take a look at the little fountain located in front of the Anglican Church. The base was all covered by snow but I was able to admire – and photograph – the sculpture that tops the fountain. The ensemble, called Maternity, is showing St. George as a child. It was installed in front of the church in June 2008 and it is the work of Virgil Scripcariu. Scripcariu has also done the Noah’s Ark which was the subject of one of my first posts.

  1. Either he has a little sister on the way, or his mommy should lay off the donuts!

  2. Heehee. Even the dragon looks like it's still a baby. 🙂

  3. Strange looking , but interesting.

  4. It seems the mother is not looking where she is going and is about to walk off the podium.

  5. it looks a little eccentric but i like how it's displayed. ^0^
    definitely out of the ordinary.

  6. Well, well, well. St. George and the dragon in Bucharest! I never would have thought that! 🙂

  7. I missed the Ark, which is funny, and I am a bit ambivalent about this one: it is original but somewhat borders on ridiculous. Maybe it was exactly what the artist wanted…
