Super photo ... Any other info onthe sculpture, and/or its sculptor,or should I just look on Wikipedia?!-- dhsh
A photo of the sculpture is on the Wikipedia page about Pessoa. The sculpture (again WP) is by Lagoa Henriques.
Wow, great photo, good photographer! I can feel Pessoas melancholy somewhere, vibrating softly. Such hands writing such words...Other words by ehm, what was the name? :-) (By the way, did Pessoa commit suicide or not? Anyway, he might have, as the sculpture might say:)[...]Against that time do I insconce me here / Within the knowledge of mine own desart, / And this my hand, against my selfe vpreare, / To guard the lawfull reasons on thy part, //To leaue poore me, thou hast the strength of lawes, / Since why to loue, I can alledge no cause.
According to Wikipedia, Pessoa died of cirrhosis.
