Saturday Sculpture


I am not sure who the artist is but I love this silver bird sitting proudly on this metal cactus at the Wilford Gallery on Canyon Road. I just wanted to bring a little sparkle to your day.

Isn't he shiny and pretty! I love that type of wind sculpture I see in the background. What are you doing up so late?

You certainly do have some unique statues around your way Randy. This one makes me feel it is just so 'Santa Fe'.

This is so nice. It is interesting. All metal is nice idea.

Dawn said...

MaCoBra said...

That's art.. I love it.. :)

VP said...

I have one of these above my terrace, the author is a a plumber and my bird is a real gull!

Kathy said...

And I'm wondering what's beyond that fence in the background.

Kate said...

Had to laugh; not to disparage the sculpture but it reminds me of old stovepipes. Hope it's not too hot for the shiny bird! Have a great week-end, Randy!

Sonya Heilmann said...

That bird is fantastic - I love it!

Birdman said...

I'm glad you told me it was a cactus. hahahaha

Traveling Hawk said...

Unusual bird! Did it sang, Randy?

I am now sporting a big, bright smile! :-) Have a great weekend Randy!

Leif Hagen said...

I fun, unusual sculpture for sure! I bet it could even survive and thrive here in EAGAN, Minnesota!

Luis Gomez said...

What a great piece Randy!

Sharon said...

Very cute bird!

texwisgirl said...

oh i WANT that big fat silver bird!!! ha!

Jacob said...

I rather like that cactus. It shouldn't "bite" you if you sit on it. And the bird is to die for. I'd buy that in a second!

Lúcia said...

When could I imagine a silver bird could be so cute?!

Farmchick said...

So creative! We have plenty of stove pipe and I would not have thought of making a cactus out of it!

Regina K said...

That will sparkle a day.

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

That is a pretty cool creation. Makes me want to go down to Home Depot and get a bunch of duct work and create my own. The bird really makes it. Think that would not be availible at HD though.

Jack said...

Pretty cool.

lifeisaroadtrip said...

That is definitely some bling! Wouldn't want to pass this on the side of the road while driving in the sunny desert. Hope you have a great weekend!

RedPat said...

I Love it!! And it looks like he/she fabricated the metal pieces themselves - great imagination and craftsmanship.

Johnny said...

Tus esculturas son muy originales. Un abrazo

Allison said...

Chubby little shiny bird. Sweet!

Carola said...

This is so shiny and cool with this bird sitting on it.

wonderful steel cactus

JM said...

A silver bird on a metal cactus. Fantastic! Great idea.

I've just noticed 'The Weeping Camel' is among your favourite movies. I LOVED it! There are some really awesome movies from that part of the world (Middle East included).

EG Wow said...

The whimsy is charming. Saguaro and bird seem perfect for the southwest...but wait? Do you have saguaros in Santa Fe?

Now, do I like this or the dancing sheep best. Perhaps it's the folded bison.

Steffe said...

Very cool.

Loving all the art you've featured on Canyon Road. I have one or two of my own on my desktop.
