Detail from
King Neptune Sculpture/Fountain
at Malaga Cove, Palos Verdes Estates, California

Created by an unknown artist in the 17th century as a copy of the original 16th century bronze fountain by Giambologna, the sculpture was imported from Italy by the collector, Arnoldo Adolfo di Segni in the late 1920s, purchased from him by the Palos Verdes Project and dedicated in Malaga Plaza on February 16, 1930. The sculpture was restored and rededicated in 1969 and 1999.

    love the texturing done on this one!

  • Thank you, Shaneran! I really enjoy playing with textures—I think they can either ruin or really add to an image.

    Great angle for this one!

  • Thank you! I hadn’t seen this angle before, and it gave me a different feel for Neptune in the moment.

    your use of texture really brings a whole new dimension to the photography of statuary. I’m loving it!!!!!

  • Very nice to hear, Lois! This was fun capturing this piece that’s a real landmark around here.
