in Ireland at the National Stud Farm (Ranch?) we saw sculptures like this of horses made from the branches; and there are several at the Portland airport as well... love to see the 'real deal' checking out his counterpart. nicely put together, Joan!

This is a wonderful entry!

I know of an artist, Deborah Butterfield, who specializes in creating sculptures of horses using found objects, and have enjoyed seeing her work in several shows. The sculpture in your photo looks like one of her pieces.

This sculpture was at The Eden Project in Cornwall .. I thought how lovely it was Stephanie,and that maybe sometime it would become useful for fotothing....

I would have thought that with your artistic talent and Barry's 'elbow' you could have made one for yourself Shirley.

Thanks Fleur, this sculpture was by Heather Jansch...you can find her work at www.heatherjansch.com. Made from driftwood, surprising what comes from the sea.
