I agree with Anita. I prefer love locks on bridges, not sculptures. I have a fun photo from Napa Valley by the Wine Train Depot with tons of love locks.
How interesting Nancy! I’ve never heard of love locks outside of Europe.
I am a huge fan of the love locks…have a lock of my own to lock onto a bridge someday soon….but I am not sure if I agree with locking them on a statue! I missed that while in Paris in October. Took tonnes of photos of the bridge locks. I am starting to see the locks everywhere on almost any surface…but I think I prefer them to be congregated together on a bridge or a love lock tree that has been erected expressly for that purpose, not where they may damage a sculpture or work of art. I am at a cross roads on this one.
Apparently, Anita, thee city removes them every now and then, so the ones on the statue may very well disappear.
