Interesting sculpture. I'd love to hear the artist's perspective.

Doesn't he have a terrible backache? ;-)) I like the expression and the gesture!

Olivier said...

elle est surprenante, poétique et bizarre à la fois.
it is amazing, poetic and strange at the same time.

Dina said...

Strange how animal-like we can look in that position.
Do kids get on his back for a free ride?

Pam said...

Magnificent welcoming sculpture with a flower in hand :)

Very strange and fun sculpture but I think I like it because of that.

Fascinating sculpture. He has a "Wild Child" feel to him.

Tricia said...

Oh My Goodness! I'm speechless

Saretta said...

He seems to have strangely unnatural proportions!

Marie-Noyale said...

He makes me think of 'Little red riding hood"
Grandmother why do you have such big feet or hands??!!
But he is friendlier than the wolf ,holding that flower.

Jacob said...

That is so cool. The poor fellow looks a bit elongated, though. I wonder how people react to him...if most reactions are positive?

Marc said...

Well JM, I just think this looks strange...

marley said...

Very unusual statue. Great photos.

Hilda said...

Uh, I think this is a little too strange for my taste.

Mo said...

An intriguing sculpture.

PJ said...

Everything about his proportions is slightly strange, but his expression is so, well, welcoming!

Wow, very interesting. Great hamstring stretch!

Babooshka said...

Trust me to get the opposite effect. He's so out of proportion I find him disturbing.

freaky
