Love Theme

Walking through a busy Taipei street, we came across this interesting Love sign. Quite a few people were posing in front of it and I usually don't pass on anything that calls for a photograph.


Aside from the Love sign were a number of displays like this one.
I believe all were sponsored by the Chinatrust Bank because of its "We are family" slogan.


The exhibits were all along this one sidewalk.


Outside the Taipei 101 building is the famed Robert Indiana "Love" sculpture. I had no idea one would be here.
There are quite a few of these situated throughout the world such as New York, Philadelphia, Tokyo, Istanbul, ...etc. as listed on Wikipedia.
Have you come across one yourself?

Love all the love. I would have had to photograph all the love also.

Those are so cute!

And love should be spread around and promoted. ^^

I just love the LOVE sculpture I could see one of those fitting in nicely some place in Central London.

Betchai: I can't believe there isn't one in California.

Rainfield61: It's a friendly country!

Yogi: With all those smiley face characters, they were all begging for a picture.

Lina: I agree, doesn't hurt to spread love everywhere.

Filip: With all your traveling, I am sure you'll see one eventually. :)

William: Central London is as good as a place as any for another Love sculpture.

What an amazing amalgam of art, whimsy, silly and iconic. Wow - great collection.
