Don Quixote rides again

.

D is for Don Quixote.
Zeevik Gottlieb made the unusual sculpture and it was part of the Humor and Satire exhibition along Jerusalem's  Mamilla Avenue  last year.
Looks like the knight errant carries his own windmill that he plucked from a modern wind farm, no? 

LOGON, the Light Opera Group of the Negev, will be staging the musical "Don Quixote, Man of La Mancha."
In English! 
It will open in Beer Sheva on February 27 and will  tour major cities in Israel.

P.S.  See a video of The Impossible Dream song with Peter O'Toole, of blessed memory, as Don Quixote.

Even from the thumbnail I guessed this was Don Quixote. Something about the posture the artist chose telegraphs the message. How do artists do that? Cool post, Dina.

It's amazing how the sculptor got the essence of Don Quixote! I too recognized Don Q. without needing the label.

Funny sculpture! But it does look like Don Quijote, after all Don Quijote is not normal at all. Cool sculpture, I like it.
