POTD: Taking a Pounding

Taking a Pounding
Budapest, Hungary

Another one of the statues at the Liberty Monument, this one of a guy pummeling a dragon. When I saw his fist in the air like that I for some reason flashed back to when I was a kid and the biggest physical threat I could think of was to tell someone “I’m going to pound you!” The violent action in the statue contrasts sharply with the wistful, almost bored look of the young lady at it’s feet. Perhaps she’s bored with having boys fight over her.
