The Homesteaders/ My World

Mom

Last week I posted Moose Scraps, a sculpture in the Haliburton Sculpture Forest made of  recycled farm equipment.  Click HERE to see the moose.

Here's a family in the forest, this one created by JakeMol, a water-colour teacher at the Haliburton School of the Arts.

No, NOT your typical Canadian family.  This family is made of recycled materials,  some that might have been found at the nearby farmstead - part of the Highlands Haliburton Museum adjacent to the the sculpture forest.

Pop

Kid

Dog





Visit My World Tuesday  HERE to see tons of photos from around the world.

Those are so whimsical! I often think about what the difference is between art and kitsch -- dunno' but I know it when I see it". Those are art. Thanks for sharing.

This is a cute family. It's wonderful that recycled materials can be used to create something both beautiful and fun.

I like the idea of having a scrap family in the forest. Your "portraits" of them are great as well.

I love art made with recycled materials and these are such good examples of that kind of art.

How interesting, I wonder if he is hiding to see how many people are admiring his work.

Janie said...

Great use of all those otherwise "junk" materials. The creator has a great imagination. Enjoyed the photos!

Kathy said...

Hmmm. I see penguin instead of dog. I do have spatial dyslexia at times, however.

I LOVE those - they're adorable! They'd look very cool in my parents' wooded backyard (or a bit bizarre on my urban penthouse balcony LOL).
