Rodin's Thinker

This is statue outside the Ueno Museum of Western Art. It’s Rodin’s “Thinker”. Helmut says this is the original. I questioned this, but he says he’s pretty sure.

As I suspected, the original is on display in Copenhagen.

That is genuine statue by Auguste Rodin. In fact, there are 21 "authorised" Thinker all around the world, and 5 of them exist in Japan.

But most important one would be obviously the one at Musee Rodin in Paris, I guess.
