Red Ring Juggler

Tim Brown's 12-foot tall, glossy red, metal sculpture juggles outside the Gardner-Colby Gallery on Naples' "Gallery Row," Broad Avenue South.

The juggler has a bird's nest in his hair.  The gallery owners and sculptor must know about it.  I'm guessing they are bird lovers who don't want to upset the inhabitant by removing its home.

Thanks to the nesting birds we can now call the sculpture "Bird Brain".

So cool! It really adds a lot to the entranceway. And the nest is quite a bonus! :-)

Is this a strange artwork, but I like it!
Happy weekend, Jack!

A very nice sculpture, quite original in its pose and color. I hope the guest birds will not 'vote' against their home...

The birds must not have known they picked such a prominent spot to raise their family.

Julie has a similar experience as you with a writer sharing her name, as you and I explained in comments on Steffan's Daily Photo site from Sweden today.

This is a wonderfully happy statue made more interesting by the presence of birds!

"Look, honey! This is a perfect spot! Morning sun, easy access, and look at all the spots to perch! Can't you just see the chicks perching on that cute little star over there?"

I like the idea that birds choosed this place as home ! In french , to have a small bird in the head means to be kind of a poet ..

That is a fun sculpture that should bring a smile every time one sees it. Looks like the juggler is about to loose his balance.

I like a little nature and chaos in all that human design.

Randy said...
