Last week’s mention of mate Arthur referring to blocks of flats as ‘flocks of bats’ had me thinking of the term for such reversal of letters, spoonerisms. That in turn had me thinking of other things associated with spoons, so that eventually I decided that the rest of the week’s posts would be on the theme of spoons.
Monday is pics day so, today, some pics about spoon art. . .
Twisted Reality, a sculpture by Tomas Misura in the 2007 Sculptures by the Sea exhibition, an annual display of sculptures on the coastal walk from Bondi to Tamarama. It had a $34,000 price tag but I am unaware as to whether it sold. Misura is a professional blacksmith with a Czech background who now lives at Bondi.
Spoon sculpture by Japanese sculptor Yoshizen. The hands are placed on the figure’s chest to hide a hole in the wood.
