    Really cool and interesting!

  • Thanks, Dot! I believe the children of the original owners commissioned the work for their parents’ wedding anniversary – not sure how long ago.

    WO WWWWWWWWw this is such an unusal subject, but it really works terrific shot

  • Thank you, Malcolm! It’s quite a unique statue – I’ve seen cars driving past almost come to a screeching halt (it’s right at the edge of a main highway) when they spot it.

    So that’s what you get up to when you’re banging around out back. Didn’t know you could do this sort of thing Monnie. Oh, I see that it wasn’t made by you still, your shot of it is great. Cheers.Tony.

  • Very funny! The last time I tried building anything of any consequence, I was using Tinkertoys. Thanks, Tony!
