A couple of bronze sculptures in Yreka California.
In the lobby at the Auckland Botanical Gardens they had several sculptures for sale. Lovely work but no way to get it home. Here are a few that I really liked.
Another sculpture from the Auckland Botanical Gardens. More uplifting than the one last week.
This sculpture brought tears to my eyes. It was one of the Sculptures in the Garden at Auckland Botanical Garden.
This is part of this year’s Sculpture in the Gardens at Auckland Botanical Gardens. It is by artist Jane Downes.
Yes, there were some real bees in the same garden:
We were lucky enough to happen on the Sculpture in the Gardens while killing time waiting for our late night flight home. The Auckland Botanical Gardens were lovely and it was easy to get there using local buses. I’ll share a few more from this exhibit in the next few weeks.
I came across this charming local guy with his cup of Yerba Mate, watching all the tourists as they go into the La Boca neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina. We were there in January of 2017. Doesn’t seem like three years should go by so quickly.
The entire display is called a Gingerbread Village, I’m not sure what they call the individual entries. But I think of them as sweet sculptures. I showed one of them in yesterday’s Pull up a Seat post. Here is another. This one is a village all on its own.
It’s worth clicking on the photos to make them bigger and zooming in a bit so you can see the details. I am always amazed by the creativity and fun details. It makes me think that the people who make them have fun with the project.
