Odd Shot/ Manic Monday - BIG

Just in case you thought you'd seen everything...

Yep, a pull toy almost as tall as a one-storey house! See the wheels? Someone must have very big children an incredible imagination, I'd say. Did you notice the hinges on the mastodon's ears?

I think this mastodon is great. In fact, he'd look fabulous in my side yard. Or not.
And here's a side view -- just ignore the clutter in the background. ;-) I took the photo from the street because I didn't want to be caught tresspassng tresspass.

FYI: This sculpture is not in East Gwillimbury, but in a town east of here. Not too, too far away though. ;-)

This post is doing double service: it's an Odd Shot and a Manic Monday BIG shot. ("big shot" LOL)

I think this is fabulous. I would pull that down any street in any parade for free. Wow. I am impressed. That person or persons has more imagination and creativity than most artists I know.

The perfect odd shot. One marvels at the creativity and effort involved in producing this woody mammoth.

That is neat. I'm surprised that some jerk hasn't come around and messed with it...

What a wonderful piece! So creative and , well, it has ATTITUDE! I wonder if someone rode inside or topside and made the ears move.

Aileni said...

I am odd about flags,perhaps - but this cutter of wood is odder still. His mastodon is pretty odd too.

Fabulous!! It reminds me of those horse sculptures made of scraps of wood that I've seen in art museums all over the country.
