Seahorses At Play Beneath The Sea

This sculpture of seahorses certainly caught my eye among the work of the solo carvers.


Tomorrow is a Theme Day for City Daily Photo bloggers, namely on Aging, so I'll be taking a break from this, but we'll be back to finish Winterlude off with several more sculptures after the theme day. And have a peek at my writer's blog today, where I'm paying tribute to Leonard Nimoy.

  6. I wonder if all of these carvers talk and agree not to carve the same thing.

  7. @Cloudia: very cool creatures!

    @Jen: so did I.

    @Elaine: I liked that one was fanciful, and one was realistic.

    @Tomas: yes, he was one and the same.

    @Mo: This year I didn't seem to get out to the sculptures during the evening. I'll have to remedy that next year.

    @Grace: thanks!

    @Janis: some years you wonder- and then other years three mermaids show up!

  9. I have enjoyed all your photos of these ice sculptures but this one, I absolutely love it. Maybe because sea horses fascinate me.

  14. @Marleen: carvers doing this are real craftspeople.

    @Tex: this one's my favourite among the solo carver works.

    @Red: and he did wonders in carving it.

    @Denise: they're such unusual animals.

    @Ciel: someone mentioned a few days ago about the smaller sculptures being an ideal subject for it. I wish I'd thought of doing that, but by then, my posts for that were all scheduled.

    @Anna: merci!

    @Cheryl: thanks!

    @VP: it's a pleasure to show it.

  20. After seeing all these wonderful ice sculptures, wouldn't it be great to see them as images in a fairy tale. This one in particular gave me the idea. Once again, the attention to detail is extraordinary.

  27. So, a seahorse hitching a ride with a horse? That is pretty clever.

    ReplyDelete
