Le Penseur (The Thinker)- by Auguste Rodin

Ever wonder what he's thinking about? Jackie Nott made me feel younger when she referenced Doby Gillis after seeing this piece. Doby Gillis was a 50's-60's era situation comedy show that used this pose for the lead character in the intro to the show. Evidently Jackie is not only an art student but keeps up on her vintage TV history!

I found the answer! He's smelling the giant roses and contemplating their philosophical significance as you can see.
The Rodin Museum is a wonderful oasis of peace and solitude in the middle of Paris. The birds were singing cheery tuneful melodies for us all morning. Fabulous displays of the great master's work throughout the beautiful grounds and within the mansion.
