  1. Re solace – to me, he looks like he belongs as a figurehead on the prow of a ship. At sea, being becalmed was bad, thus solace of the wind. Without the title, he looks to be leaning gratefully into a stiff breeze. (One would have to be mindful of those background poles when photographing this fellow!)

    • That’s a really good point Christine. He does look like a prow figurehead. To be honest, I didn’t know the sculpture was called that until I looked it up for the photo caption. I’ve always known it as “the swimmer”!
