Wow!

I looked at the Pinterest page, and those sculptures are very cool!

What material does he use?

I think all the big sculptures are steel -- it's the way he weathers it that makes some look so warm and woody.

Thanks to least, I'm very happy to know that humans aren't alone in artistic gifts.

trach, I've seen images of those funny little creatures before.

I'm not going to Google any more than that, because it kinda creeps me out a little bit.

When I see something like this



I try to remember, "tat tvam asi" "you are that" -- one of the great statements of Vedantic philosophy.

See, but I don't know what it is, so I Google it and Google freakin' scares me!

Aack.

It is among many phrases I don't Google...."weird one-eyed creature," because anything creepy that can have one eye (or is that a mouth?) will show.



Baby octo for the win.

That is a mouth. And when I see videos of them, every time the mouth pops out, I hear"Boop".

Gilmer? you were pretty quiet on the tardigrade, which looks more than anything like a vacuum-cleaner bag.

You want to supply our next gift?
