The Hirschorn Sculpture Garden

Walking across from the Whitehouse back to the Capitol building to complete my tour of the National Mall I decided to take a detour at the Smithsonian gallery to wander through the sculpture garden. This was an amazing experience with the vast gardens dotted with over 100 sculptures - some on a small scale whilst others filled a whole corner of the garden. I found this depiction of eros and psyche to be strangely compelling with its echoes of the confusions induced in the clash between love and reason - or something.
