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.
cool creatures - fun artReplyDelete
ALOHA from Honolulu
love it :)ReplyDelete
I like the comparison of the two sea horses. Well done!ReplyDelete
Leonard Nimoy, this gentleman died yesterday in Los Angeles right ?.ReplyDelete
Have a nice weekend, William.
I would love to see coloured lights shining through this stunning sculptureReplyDelete
Seahorses are my favourite underwater creatures .. love this one William.ReplyDelete
I wonder if all of these carvers talk and agree not to carve the same thing.ReplyDelete
@Cloudia: very cool creatures!ReplyDelete
@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.
@Janis: some years you wonder- and then other years three mermaids show up!
I really admire their creativity.ReplyDelete
oh, that's very nice!ReplyDelete
This guy had a great idea.ReplyDelete
I have enjoyed all your photos of these ice sculptures but this one, I absolutely love it. Maybe because sea horses fascinate me.ReplyDelete
So you didn't find a sculpture that would be suitable for the Theme, eh?! :-) This has a dreamy quality to it, I love it!ReplyDelete
Celle-ci est extraordinairement réussie aussi !ReplyDelete
Love the comparison of horses! Beautiful sculpture!ReplyDelete
You keep showing us a truly fantastic world!ReplyDelete
@Marleen: carvers doing this are real craftspeople.ReplyDelete
@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.
@VP: it's a pleasure to show it.
All the sculptures You present are nice, But the cover photo is amazing. THX William.ReplyDelete
JUst looked through the ice sculptures you have shown, they are amazingReplyDelete
Its hard to believe they are ice sculptures.ReplyDelete
They are so creative!ReplyDelete
"Live Long and Prosper." Mr. SpockReplyDelete
Seahorses of different kinds!ReplyDelete
Another good one, very creative !ReplyDelete
Now I'm thinking of the song "Octopus's Garden." Uh oh, ear worm alert!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
I feel quite sad that I missed these gorgeous pieces!!ReplyDelete
Lovely ! I like the idea of the two !ReplyDelete
i love seahorses. ( :ReplyDelete
I love seahorses...even those carved in ice!ReplyDelete

@Norma: and these are icy ones!

Quite a lovely and fanciful piece!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous. Loved the concept.ReplyDelete
Yes, I do like that piece with the two different horses.ReplyDelete
So, a seahorse hitching a ride with a horse? That is pretty clever.ReplyDelete
The ice sculptures are amazing! I'll try to find your post on Nimoy now.ReplyDelete
So ageing inside and out!ReplyDelete
What a great couple of horses, I love both of them.ReplyDelete
