Insides outside

The marvelous annual Sculpture by the Sea is on in Bondi, Australia. These critter photos were taken by my daughter and son-in-law, who live in Bondi.
As Naomi wrote in her blog, "These animals had their insides showing."


My two grandsons here loved the flying whale.
No, this is not Jonah being spewed out of the great fish's belly. It's Dean, under the baleen!
Naomi and Dean befriend the urchins.
Thanks for the use of your fun photos, Naomi!

Lots more animals are appearing today over at Camera-Critters, waiting for your visit.

Dina: How nice to get photos of the grand kids. Those anils look a little stoic. It's a good thing since one of the kids got in the whales mouth just like Noah did years ago.

marLou said...

Those sculptures are amazing looking!

Misty Dawn said...

What a neat event! I would have loved to have been there.

Rambling Woods said...

What fun photos and look at the color of the water...

I thought those animals were great although it was incredibly crowded the day I went. My photos of Sculpture by the Sea are up next week. This year was the first time I've been, don't know why it took so long, but in future I think I'll take a day off and go in the week.

Love the 'see-through' animals. The fun whale sculpture actually has a very serious message. I don't remember who it was, but someone in CDP posted it a few days ago.

Lilli & Nevada said...

I love these sculptures there beautiful

Kris said...

I visited the exhibition of a couple of years ago. Good fun, but the sculptures were of variable quality!

Good to see the kiddies too.

Fun and creative, these sculptures!

great sculptures - reminds me of some colourful painted cow sculptures that were scattered around athens city for a while...
i opened the link to iba - but it was all in hebrew, so i couldnt find the link to the icon painters...

Dina said...

Carletta, Naomi is a good sharer.

Kay, in the second photo you can see Guy too, pushing the stroller.

I Beati, you're almost transported to Bondi!


Thanks Dar and Ratmammy and Tootie, Bobbie, Twobarkingdogs, and Pat and Wil!

Eki, true. "Skeletal," I like that.

Webradio, yes, my two grandsons in the photos. (One more in California.)

Fishing Guy, ha, good point. Wait, don't you mean Jonah?

marLou, Misty Dawn, Wil, I agree!

Ann, I look forward to seeing your shots. I guess lots of people around those artworks can't be avoided; it's the nature of the beast. hehe

Hilda, I'd like to know the message. Maybe I can find that post you mention.

Lilli and Nevada, and every year new ones on the shore!

Kris, so you get off your island sometimes? The nice part is, there are so many sculptures you are bound to find ones you like.

Abe the Birthday Boy!

Toda raba Klaus.

Petra Michelle, really!

Kiwi, animals are good for art!
Well, you'll have to take my word for it, the TV report about Crete being an icon painting center was great.
