Stone, wood, cement.

Over the last couple of weeks I have noticed that there are a number of sculptures that I have not noticed before, I don't know why as some of the date plates say they have been there for years.

I thought some of them where very interesting, so started to make a photo collection. Some of them are in private gardens and drives, others are in public places.

Just thought I would share some of them, other may follow.

Very intriguing.

Some look like Antony Gormley's. (He did Angel of the North in Gateshead)

What do you think he is thinking Grandma B?

the 3rd pic is part of a group of sculptures that are on the top of the sand dunes on the west coast of Jutland. She stands with her back to the North Sea, so at this time of year its pretty chilly, so I reckon she's thinking .........."give me your hat and coat please"

All these Martin are local to me on the west coast of Jutland Danmark.

There is a local stone mason/sculptur just up the road, I will see what he has next time I drive by, he has sold many of his sculptures locally.

I rather liked a diving eagle his had for sale, but when he wanted £3600 I went off the idea.

I had a wee drive about this afternoon and saw these chaps they mark one of Denmarks oldest known defenses. Frame dyke runs from north to south and runs for more than 2.5 km. The dyke blocks the access of an old road corridor, which runs along the line of the many burial mounds south of the Limfjord.

These statues were put in place by The A.P. Møller Foundation.

Flying geese, I would rather like these in my garden, they were made by a local "stone chipper" and given to a local village as a present. Shame the villagers don't take better care of the cobble stones beneath them.



This one is mounted beside the driveway to some local trout fishing lakes.
