Astonishing Sculptures

I love public art! Especially those pieces that catch us off-guard, delight us, or make us think. These public sculptures–in thoroughfares, in forests or along garden paths, some even carved right into the trees and rocks, employing living scenery–do just that!

  1. I kept thinking,”Oh, this is my favorite! No, this is my favorite!” The imagination and skill all these took is beyond my comprehension. And the emotions that each draws from me are priceless.

    Incredible! When I first read your title, I thought it said, “Astonishing SCRIPTURES” and I wondered which ones you might choose to call astonishing.

  11. Loved these! Did you write the captions? Very fitting. I have seen pictures of the “homeless Jesus” before – very thought-provoking.

    Yes, indeed gorgeous and many kinds of sculptures! My favorite one is: “Let me out!”. In Finland we use chain saw when making carvings. We love bears and that is why we have bear carving contests. If You do not mind, I give here the first post of two:
