Most Valuable Sculpture

What does it say about the internet (and our society) that every reference I can find for this piece mentions it is the most valuable sculpture in Offenburg? Does it have no other significance? I would have thought that content or artistic merit would be more important. But obviously I am wrong. (And admittedly I […]

Buried Alive?

  Took a trip to the Black Forest village of Munstertal on Saturday, looking for a change of scenery and to see St. Trudpert’s church (that will be a future post). I was intrigued by this sculpture in the church cemetery. As you can see, it is the fingers (and thumb) of a hand rising […]

Mesmerized

A photo essay for you today. These sculptures caught my eye outside the Mesmer Gallery in Riegel when we visited last July to see the Dali exhibition they had at the time.

I had never heard of Bernhard Kleinhans before, which isn’t that surprising – I’m not exactly a sculpture […]

The Emperor Has No Clothes

I’ve come to the conclusion that I have missed my calling in life. I should have been a sculptor. Anyone who knows me will find that a shocking statement. It is widely acknowledged that I cannot draw a straight line with a ruler; stick figure drawings are beyond me. In primary school when we had […]
