Installment #5 of Blogstalking is all about an interesting statue. And I have seen plenty of them!
But the one that most recently sticks with me was when I went to San Diego last summer.

I actually had to go digging for the picture so I could scan it and then I couldn't remember for the life of me the name of the statue, but I was intrigued by it because of the name......that I could not remember! LOL

The i.nternet is a wonderful thing! I researched statue exhibits on Harbor Drive, and appears that since 2003 San Diego has this art exhibition called the Urban Trees!

Here is the one I really liked called Hiss-Tree

San Diego just has awesome weather!

When I visited in July '06 they were on Cycle 3. There are 30 unique statues that are lined up along the oceanfront that people can view, and I really enjoyed quite a few of them (i.e. Kelp, Solar Cactus, and Sunset Trees) that I also took pictures of as well.

Here is a close up of the Hiss-tree that I got from the Unified Port of San Diego site.Of course the artist would be willing to sell it to you for the low low price of $19,000 :oD

~ BTW, I am going to give blogger one more chance on this comment thing...I hear it is working alright now.

    So that must be where our city got the idea for its "art in place" which pales in comparison...

    Yes, Virtuous ended up going back to the reg comment box.

    It fits your blog better, imo.

    Isn't that you in the photo?

    Hiss-tree is very cool! Thanks for sharing.

    I second Adrienne's comment about Typepad - it emails you the comments immediately, and I love it for so many reasons. Unfortunately, it's not free.

    I have been to San Diego, I love it there. I haven't been in awhile, I like the name but the artist can keep the art.

    Hope all is working better :) I got mad a blogger too awhile back for so many reasons mostly posting problems so i understand the frustration. cool statue Why did you buy it???? -hah 19,000-i carry that around all the time in the hopes of buying a huge statue for my front yard. Can you imagine what the neighbors would be thinking. I bet making that statu was a hell of a job though.
