The Big Blue Head!



 The Japanese say you have three faces, the first face you show the world, the second face you show your closest friends and family, the third face, the truest, you never show anyone..  

I have passed and looked at this many face-faceted :) three metre high sculpture sitting under the tall eucalyptus trees on the corner of Loftus and Vincent St. so often without stopping. When we passed there a few days ago and I saw that he is now sporting a pretty fancy crocheted beanie and scarf I felt it was a sign that this was the time! 'Beseech' aka the big blue head, was created by Ken Sealy for the Town of Vincent. The artist's statement 'Beseech watches and waits, activating the space by creating tension through expectation and anticipation.' The BBH might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoy seeing him when driving by. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe...

  9. Very big, very blue, very interesting. The hat and scarf are works of art too. I think I need to knit a scarf for my tree in front of my house. Weather is getting colder..... hmmm....

  14. I like it, especially with the new clothes! I hope the beanie and scarf are not yarn bombs that disappear after a little while.

  19. Funny fella, Grace, I´d expected such a development rather when winter is arriving, not summer. Reminds me of having a look at our wrestlers, the one on top usually gets socks in winter :-)
