Back to its Roots…. the Earth Challenge


Back to its Roots…

Not just any old fallen branch….but one carefully selected and installed in this Stone lined Pit (at least 9ft deep)…..its branches digging deep into the earth.  Just one of several imaginative sculptures installed in Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Whilst it received a mixed reception with viewers who discovered the Sculpture on a woodland trail, viewers either loved the theme or were less than enthused.  You can make your own minds up.  What ever you think, this branch is heading back to its roots.

Just an idea for Debbie Smythe’s  Weekly Challenge – EARTH.

Two days to go……


Two days to go… to Halloween that is.

But it is not too late to get your magic potions and spells…. or maybe a new pointy hat or why not upgrade your Crystal Ball.  Maybe a super charged Broom Stick but you have to provide your own Black Cat.  Currently out of stock of Toads and Newts.

Cash, Cards and Mystical Money Transfers accepted
