Love those statues! Are they yours? Do you know who is the artist?

Yes, it is mine.  There is only one figure.
I took a shot, moved the statue a bit and took a second shot.
Using Photoshop Elements, I merged the two images.

Some twenty years ago I was sitting at a bar on 2nd Avenue.
A fellow came in with the figure and asked if anyone wanted to buy it.
I jumped at the chance and gave him $15.00 for which he seemed quite happy.

I’ll welcome possible discussions that these two may be having with each other.
To start it off… Here is one.

He:  “You baked the kids?
          I don’t understand.
          What do you mean… You baked the kids?”

She: “I don’t know.
          I thought they were the muffins.
          I got confused.”

Really nice post processing!
I think you scored well with the $15 investment.

Thanks Dale… When I imported both files into PSE and placed the images next to each other there was a very noticeable line
where the two photos met.  I tried the blur and smudge tools with little success.  Then I was happily surprised that by using the
clone stamp at about 40% opacity I rather easily eliminated the problem.

Re the $15 investment… I’d have to calculate the inflation factor, but yes… it was a good deal.

The statues like this are very popular this days. Is there any artist name on it? 

About Photoshop – usually clone stamp will do the job for me, if everything else fails.

No, it’s unsigned.  
Perhaps this one was one of the first of those “popular these days”.
As I’ve said, this was acquired by me about twenty years ago.

I agree with Oksana Mandrake – that is a cool looking statue and something
that could be worth a lot of money. Even if it isn’t your retirement fund it is
definitely a keeper just for the look of it!
