'Wildflower Egg'..



This was unexpected! Sculptures created using nature are a little like street art, here today and possibly gone tomorrow. Walking along a track at the wildflower festival in Kings Park the bushes opened out onto a clearing and there it was under the spring sunshine. Created by WA artist and sculptor Sally Stoneman the 'Wildflower egg' was sitting atop a nest created from a reclaimed Kings Park Jarrah tree that stood right on this spot! The sculpture 'encompasses concepts of protection, safety and nurturing in its cradling form and reflects the relationship between flora and fauna in the natural world'.


Have I mentioned the size of the ants in WA...


... and that hedgehogs grow on bushes! I know right, it's bonkers :) Pretty flowers tomorrow, happy Thursday, take care and stay safe...

  2. Again, delicious pictures, Gracie. This summer I saw an exhibition in the same genre, a land art circuit, and I always find these achievements made with nature and in nature moving. Thanks, Gracie for these everyday gifts, and I wish you a good day.

  7. Grace, the first sculpture looks like it might be a hold over from the Jurassic era. Too bad about the size of your ants.

  9. Oh yes! That's what I call ants! I like that creative nature art, and have a friend that creates his own art pieces out of such things, and they are truly a gift to see! Just like this!

  10. Love that egg. Reminds me a lot of a palm plant we had one time. It bunched up like a "egg" but not like a palm. You could ride those ants if you had an ant saddle with the proper bit and reins. Fun stuff, Grace!
