Sometimes the unexpected appeals.  I was wandering around the Tuilleries in Paris many years ago, admiring the sculptures.  The problem was that I'd taken a LOT of sculpture photos already that day/week, so I wasn't feeling inspired.  Then I looked closer and saw something that surprised me.  I don't know why I hadn't expected the sculpture to be signed, but it surprised me.  Then it occurred to me that this is one aspect of the scultpure that always gets overlooked.

So, here is the signature of Auguste Rodin - immortalized in bronze.
