Now there's a man who looks like he's got the weight of the world on his shoulders!
The sculpture of Atlas by James Young on the top of the Standard Buildings on Hope Street in Glasgow. They were design by James Thomson in 1889, with the top storeys added by J.B. and W.A. Thomson in 1909.
And before anyone points it out, I know in the original mythology that Atlas was condemmed to hold up the sky with his shoulders and not the Earth.

Growing out Zoroastrianiam, Mithraism was, for a time, a major religion in the western Roman Empire and some believe it came close to becoming the dominant one (rather than Christianity). Others dispute this possibility.
Either way, it's unusual to find Mithras represented amongst the much more common Greek gods and Christian imagery on a Glasgow Building.
There are many beautiful sculptures on Glasgow's buildings, but some of them are of quite unexpected subjects. It this case it's the Romano-Persian God Mithras on the former Sun Life Building on West George Street.

It's Thursday! Here's a throwback to these ladies
It's certainly very similar in style and detail to Grassby's known Father Clyde on the nearby 30 Saint Vincent Place.
I love this 1860s keystone head by Charles Grassby over the entrance to the former Junior Conservative Club on West George Street in Glasgow.
I can't find any record of what it represents, but the fish on his head and the anchor entwined in his beard suggest it could be Father Clyde, the mythological embodiment of the river on which Glasgow's fortune was built.
All I *REALLY* wanted to do was call this one done today. He's been sitting on the shelf glaring at me for a few weeks and all I had to finish was his collar. It had me stumped how I was going to construct it as a separate piece, to cover his neck joint, and I worked it out, without a pattern, roughly getting the shape I intended, just using some scraps of another piece. I try where I can to recycle and not put things in the bin especially fabric scraps. I had also broken his head several times and had to glue the tendrils (his "lekku") back on, then sand it down before I could paint it. His head, hands, feet, body and clothes are entirely handmade. He's a kind of gross greedy corrupt politician character seen really just in the background in the films and a few more times in the animated series, but he is such a unique design I really wanted to make him. My photography isn't the best (need to learn a thing or two about toy photography) but I really wanted to snap a pic right at the moment of birth. He is Orn Free Taa, Senator of Ryloth. He sort of reminds me a greedy Cardinal Wolsey or Trump type character and in another age I would have loved to have seen him played by actor Frank Thring. I dont know which Star wars concept artist originally designed him.
While at the Gas Filling Tube Suckers in I was able to fill this Double Rainbow Zizzle Zazzle I bent at Museum Of Neon Art in . It's the first "bend and wrap" sequence that has ever survived. There is a combo bend and a wrap alternating between each of the 7 Italian in this . It makes a nice cool white glow, is about 8 inches in the largest direction and is for in the Pacific Northwest.
Made it back to my buddy Galen's place in and his GFTS studio to finish up this and help him with a thing or two. Plenty of wires! It's now in a good state of done, double boxed and headed to a show at the Nicolayson Museum in Casper, . I gotta get some plans together and go to the opening in September!
Always fun seeing and hanging with Galen and other Seattle/ Tacoma . here I come!

I have a new favourite lion in Glasgow's architecture and it's this one from the keystone of an arch on the Norwich Union Chambers at 125 Saint Vincent Street. I just love that piercing stare and the motion of the roar which has been captured by the sculptor.
