I could see where one might not want to have that in their bedroom. Are you planning to replace them in an exterior grade wood, I assume something in the way of trim rather than carvings?

Can you suspend it across the LR between the first and second floor?

I know a few catholic ladies that would be turned on having jesus looking at them in the bedroom. Who knows, it may spice things up in the bedroom...

Thanks for the suggestion on the sculpture, lefty.

In theory, yes, I could suspend the sculpture, but I don't know if that's the best way to display it. It was meant to be viewed as a totem; e.g. vertically and looking up at it. The face of Christ is particularly compelling, but loses something when viewed from the "wrong" angle.

Because it is so tall, there are only 2 rooms in the house that can accommodate it: the bedroom and the main living room. Rather than suspend it, per se, I have considered putting it in a corner of the living room, but given that the balcony runs around 360 degrees of the room, and is lower than 12 feet in height, it would have to sit out into the room a little bit. Which is problematic, as there is some kind of entryway in three corners of the room. I really like the bedroom idea, as a Christ figure doesn't really bother me there, but if not I think the best idea is in the far left corner of the room in this photo:



nestled up against the balcony bannister, facing out towards the room, and perhaps up on some kind of pedestal just to give it a little extra height. This would also allow you to view it up close from the balcony.

But that means it is out into the room a good bit, which is a bit problematic from a furniture arrangement standpoint, but is otherwise fairly compelling and dramatic. We'll just have to see.

As for the other three totems still attached to the house: Two are hardwood and are doing just fine outside. They have been treated with an oil-based stain to protect them, and they are in very good shape, aside from the one having fallen down - due more to its lashing than its own condition. But this one that was separated and a small one on the back were made of poplar, and the weather and the insects are just having their way with them. So that back one I have considered also bringing inside (it is only about 4 or 5 feet tall and could be displayed more easily indoors). If I were to do so, I'd try to take some kind of plaster mold of it and replace it outside.

I would be less then compelled to display either of them indoors, but since you are I would think about cutting them down to a more manageable size. *If* they are not so precious that it would be destroying the value of them.

Probably the 8th time that has been posted in one of these threads, but it is nice to see that the guy is still going (are we sure it's not StephenHero running that tumblr?).

I wish the "#things on books" tag was more fleshed out...it shows up a lot but he uses the tag a few times and it would be fun to scroll through them all. Nothing like making it entirely obvious that you've got those fancy tomes just for appearances' sake than putting a fucking globe on top of your books.
