John the Baptist

04 Dec

I met John the Baptist striding across the hills when I was out and about in Galloway.

I’m the one wearing jeans and a jumper. I bet John is wishing that Rodin had sculpted him with clothes on now that winter is here.

There are five or six Rodin sculptures dotted about the hills north of Shawhead. The Jardine Mathieson clan who made their money during the opium wars with the Chinese are responsible for this bit of culture in the raw.
