Skywatch Friday: blue skies, weird statue

This statue can be found at Union Point along the estuary.  I think it's supposed to represent multiple cultures that inhabited the immediate area throughout history.  Nice try, no cigar.  For more sky shots, visit Skywatch Friday.

  1. Rather odd, but a good object for climbing!

  2. Oh, I like this. The amount and variety of your public art is amazing. I assume the statue has legs and feet and all that - and they let kids climb it?

  3. That is a strange statue, but it certainly works well for climbing. Nice shot!

  6. Now I know why the Venus de Milo statue is as it is.

  8. If the little girl's mom is near by I'm sure she has sweaty palms. Nice shot.

  9. Well, at least from what I can see here, I like it. So, is it constructed to encourage climbing, or is this little girl out of line? (I like the Venus de Milo comment above.)

  10. Very confusing clothing, and a bit scary to see the little girl climb it, but it's a super sky shot!

  11. As I recall, the concept of that statue was to honor great feminists in history and the artist selected visual symbols of different women whose various parts were combined to create this amalgam of great women. It doesn't quite work. It was briefly sited in downtown Oakland.

  14. Definitely different!

    I think it's interesting that so many kids have such a need to climb on things. ;)

  15. «Louis» agrees: the statue doesn't work - but that isn't important to the little climber. ;-D
