Yard Art


( 4 1/2 feet tall, weighing 70 pounds)

This wonderful piece of sculpture is on display in the front of Naked Art Gallery on Clairmont Avenue. It's just down the street from my house so I get to enjoy it many times a day. I finally parked and took some photographs last week.  The local artist is Lily Reeves and this is how she's titled her piece:

" We wonder sometimes in the life of the light just how daydreams and time do make things,
and we wonder too, still, since the lasting just might be as strange or as quite as it seems."

Very striking...

The title should make people stand next to the sculpture longer and reflect on their meanings.

That is cool. How big is it? Hard to tell.

We just got up here in Ste. Genevieve (about to head home) and I'm going to need some more coffee and have another go and that quotation. Too much like Japanese poetry for this hour.

Quite powerful! It reminds me of the sulpture of a head I saw in Florence, Italy.
