ICONS ...


Dear readers, I am participating in Alphabe-Thursday where ‘N’ is for *N*elson Mandela & other Icons …
For many, Nelson Mandela (above) is an icon. Who, in your view, is the greatest icon ever (in any field: politics, medicine, arts, sport, music etc)? Here are a few to start us off: 
Mozart,
Picasso, Dali or Miro,
Mother Theresa,
Professor Stephen Hawking,
Madame Curie,
Grace Kelly,
David Bowie,
Lola…? 
IN A POLL, WHO WOULD YOU VOTE AS THE GREATEST ICON EVER - NATCH EXCLUDING MOI, LOLA. (CAN’T VOTE FOR MYSELF, CAN I? AFTER ALL, POLITICIANS DON’T, DO THEY?)
Do tell me! And do check out other posts - Alphabe-Thursday  @ Jenny Matlock,  Rednesday & Ruby Tuesday!
And, finally, thank you to all my dear readers who have visited or commented. 
Have a great weekend!
Enjoy and see you next time,
XOXO LOLA:)

EG CameraGirl said...

Well, I have to say I'd choose Nelson Mandela...or perhaps Mother Teresa.

You have some great icons here. I don't know how I'd ever pick the greatest.

Yep Lola ! Wins hands down ~ She is a Love!

Esther Joy said...

You picked some good ones! I'm not sure who would be my favorite. I love that you added yourself as one of them!

Jim said...

All of those women I have admired, Nora. Even Lola. Had Adi lived she would have liked Lola. Adi died September 17th last year.s

She was a star on my blogs, appearing or being mentioned in least 628 posts

Nelson Mandella is in my opinion the greatest man that has walked this earth

Naperville Now said...

tough question -- requiring more time and thought power than I have at the moment. I agree, though, that Mandela did more for this world than can be measured.

Pride In Photos said...

Well Lola is pretty darn cute! I am a big Grace Kelley fan.

Sarah~Magnolia Surprise said...

Of the ones you listed, I'd say Nelson Mandela and Mother Theresa. I'd add Georgia O'Keefe and Tasha Tudor.

Of course, Lola!!
And you gotta love David Bowie's outfit....

Sandra Tyler said...

oh yes Lola is an icon too! (So is my pup poodle Toby)

Sue said...

If we're not counting Jesus Christ, then I might say Mother Teresa (probably the closest thing!).

Of course, Lola is waaay up there as well.

The blue Google icon is the most ubiquitous♫ Christ would be my personal favorite...Here's my N effort: http://lmkazmierczak.blogspot.com/2013/02/new-years-eve.html

Splendid Little Stars said...

That's a tough one. I always have a hard time choosing a favorite anything.
so let's just say, LOLA!

Had to go away and think about this. But, in no particular order:

Winnie-the-Pooh
Florence Nagle
Jeanette Winterson
Freddy Mercury

and every dog - they are all brilliant!

Ann said...

I went back to check, the photos came slowly. I really like your dog. It is the same kind as my brother's.

Tina´s PicStory said...

oh, my favorite star is also in :)

Ralph said...

As with most, the definitive icon cannot be chosen by me - an amalgam of the best character is what we hope to see...Mandella won his captors over by his dignified way in captivity;Theresa by her selfless behavior of the downtrodden.

So much character and I am not sure about Bowie - the musical artist is great but this look at the mix of Ziggy Stardust and Aladin Sane have an odd style...these references do date me somewhat :)

Ann said...

I reposted the photos.

Liza said...

Lola of course! Happy RT2.

Such nifty icons you've shared here.

Each one defines such a specific segment of society...great variety.

Thanks for linking.
