Gone Fishing

I liked this work by a Canadian team, featuring a seal (or otter) in pursuit of fish.

  7. So, do they have to keep the building 31 degrees inside during the exhibition?

  11. @Linda: thanks!

    @Cloudia: indeed.

    @Whisk: thank you!

    @Elaine: this one certainly does.

    @Tomas: hah!

    @Halcyon: indeed.

    @Gracita: thank you.

    @Revrunner: as did I.

    @Gemma: the carvers did well with it.

    @Karl: they certainly are.

    @Janis: it's outside, actually; these shelters are only open to the elements on the one side. The idea is to shelter them from the wind and the sunlight, which can do damage to sculptures even below freezing. I'll comment at your blog this morning about that situation.

    @Hilary: definitely.

    @Grace: I've already got one, so it might just be a question of grabbing another. I also have another idea for that particular theme.

    @Marianne: they really are.

    @Sharon: and true to life.

  17. @Gill: the carvers did great work this year.

    @EG: thanks!

    @Norma: thank you.

    @Cheryl: I thought so!

    @Tex: thank you!

    @Tamago: the more I look at it, the more I think it's an otter.
