Happy Memorial Day, everyone! I was in Colmar, France on Saturday and visited the Bartholdi Museum here. He was the sculptor who designed the Statue of Liberty, and they had a bunch of prototypes/concept models on display. He was interested in Egyptian and Greek mythology, and it shows in these models – early concepts had an Isis theme, but he later switched to a representation of the Roman goddess Libertas.
Stanley Cup Finals start tonight! Who you got? I’m going with San Jose in four because sharks eat penguins. What’s on tap?
