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.
