These large-scale sculptures look great in this environment. The first one really catches my eye.

Dina said...

Wooden leg?? I thought is was a giant chocolate coated ice cream bar. :)

I like public art, including this installation, although if there is a place that probably does not need artistic enhancement, it would be the lovely ocean scape that you have in this area. But it is a good location to showcase the art because there would be lots of people strolling along here here they will see the art.

You knew I was sooo going to love this post. I would like to see the lobster trap from the side, I am very curious as to how deep it is. Great post!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Cool sculptures!! I think the 'leg' looks like an ice cream bar too.

Sharon said...

What a perfect spot of this art show! I'd enjoy strolling here and looking at the great art.

VP said...

The first is funny and at least a bit creative. The other two are a desperately banal... but I like the bench in the last one.

Babzy said...

me either, i thought it was an ice cream !:) i like the concept of the horizon !

JM said...

@Dina, Wayne and babzy: IT IS! "Wooden Leg" (Perna de Pau) is the name of this specific ice cream bar! :-)

TexWisGirl said...

Wonderful sculptures! I really like the Wooden Leg. It looks like a chocolate popsicle melting into the ground. :)

Rob and Mandy said...

Vice stuff, quite evocative.

RedPat said...

I especially like the "wooden leg"!

cieldequimper said...

I wish there was a giant lobster in there!

Virginia said...

I'm with Dina, the second one is misnamed IMHO!
Love them all although the 3rd looks a little too snakey pour moi.

A nice wooden leg ice cream bar and this seaside walk and I'd be happy.

Randy said...

These are wonderful. I would like the wooden leg for garden art.

Carolina Tavares said...

Gosto muito de esculturas, e o modo como ela interage como o que está no entorno é fundamental.

Gunn said...

I like this!:)

Stickup Artist said...

I like the ice cream bar too, and I think the name, "Wooden Leg," is really funny!

Lowell said...

I like all of these very much! Excellent creative vision and execution. The first photo, though, is intriguing because of the sense of the thing collapsing into itself.

The sculptures are fantastic JM but the setting even more so, what a fabulous background.

Steffe said...

Not a bad place for the cool sculptures.
