Composed of vintage farm and other retired hardware
For those who follow my other blog (Another Slice of Life) here's another sculpture in the Haliburton Sculpture Forest, next door to the Haliburton School of the Arts, Haliburton, Ontario. I have posted a couple of other sculptures (click HERE
) and still have a few more to share with you later.
Since 2001, the group has amassed a collection of 21 sculptures by Canadian and international artists. The collection is arranged in a maple forest with trails for cyclists and pedestrian.
The forest is operated by a non-profit organization and is free to the public in spring, summer and autumn, although the organization does ask for donations (a box is provided at the entrance to the forest) to help with the forests upkeep. On Tuesday mornings during July and August, guided tours are an option.
View of moose's side, the one with the best light on an overcast afternoon
The forest is home to various wildlife such as white tail deer, woodchucks, pileated woodpeckers, red fox AND - one of the wildest of all - "Moose Scraps" by artist Leo Sepa, which he created with found metal objects. Isn't "Moose Scraps" wonderful?
This sculpture is 2.5 metres (8 feet) high. Yes this moose is big...but very friendly. It didn't even snort, let alone bite me.
