Art Appreciation



The engraving is entitled "The Exuberant Executioner". Sanson, the executioner at the guillotine set upon the site of a statue to Louis XV, displays the head of Louis XVI to the crowd.

The Capitol in the background is not Blunder Dome in Washington, DC, as much as we might want it to be.

Well Rhod, That's saying a lot without saying a lot ... Just the right amount of telling the reader how you feel.
