Titanium and silver... python.



Where to take shelter in the city when spring rain takes you by surprise! How about the Art Gallery of WA.. it works for me. Most of the exhibits are free and change on a regular basis so there's always something new to see. The python above, created in titanium and silver by Swiss born artist David Bielander was a ssssssssuper way to catch some reflections :)  Thoughts go out to all affected by hurricane Matthew, hope the worst is over now, take care and stay safe...

  1. Even though it's not real it still scares me!

  2. Impressive piece of metalwork. I've often noticed how museums and galleries fill up when it's raining outside.

  3. That is a slick and very beautiful piece of art. I'd find a place for it in my house anytime.

    We did fine through Matthew; we're far enough inland that all we got was some wind and rain. Lot of trees branches and a few small trees down, but that's about it. Thank goodness; we've been through some nasty ones before, including Hurricane Andrew when we lived in south Florida.

  9. Gee, Grace, I would have thought that the sight of a snake would have had you screaming and jumping up on a table.

  11. That python takes my breath away. Looks like it could give the big squeeze. You found the perfect way to spend a rainy day just so you don't turn your back on that snake.

  16. A watch-company once sent a preserved snake as decoration. The poor sales girl who unpacked....! My Dad kept laughing his head off but actually to her it for sure wasn´t funny!
    As is that storm again. So thankful to live in a mostly safe country.

  18. That looks an exquisite piece of craftsmanship. Bet it is rather expensive too.
