L’Aveu, Bronze Sculpture by Hippolyte Moreau.

A young man is confessing his love to a young woman. Wonderful expressions on the faces and in body positions of him, open eyes & he wants to be convincing, and her with eyes looking down ,sort of shyness in attitude and gathering a flower may be to celebrate the event…
An incredibly well done sculpture on love.
