This beautifully sculpted statue watching over Colorado Boulevard between Pikes Peak and Tejon is a majestic sculpture created by artisan Bobbie Carlyle. It is based on her bronze piece “Twilight” from her website at http://bobbiecarlylesculpture.com/Twilight.php. A large street version in Bronze, This fantastical piece represents a mythical woman emerging from twilight as darkness falls, as if from a cocoon, energized by her potential that lies before her path. Bobbie Carlyle is a Loveland Colorado artisan who is a self-made woman funded by her art as the living dream most artists possess. Bobbie states about her art “I create monumental bronze sculptures that capture bold strength and provocative intelligence. My figures go beyond first impressions to challenge the intellect and cause the viewer to look within themselves for greater meaning. My work reflects my love for classic sculpture, while presenting a modern approach with its presentation and a psychological approach for connection to the struggles and triumphs of life.” caption from Bobbie’s web site Bobbie began her art about 30 years ago. Sculpture is located near the whymsical statues of the Humpty Dumpty brothers. Rated: 5 stars out of 5 (Visited 7/20/17)
