NC Zoo Sculptures
The other day I said to Gary, "Lets go to the zoo." Gary said "I thought you hated zoos?" I said "I do hate to see caged animals, but there's sculpture there." Gary said, "I should have known, more art." I better make time to go to the air museum with Gary.
When Meredith and Mark of Whynot Pottery took us by the elephant sculpture at the NC Zoo I just had to make time to visit. Thanks Meredith and Mark. Meredith calls the elephant sculpture "her elephants". I can see why, this sculpture is wonderful. Apparently the sculpture had to be done in China because that was the only foundry large enough for the piece.
I found out I missed some sculpture and a ceramic mosaic mural at the zoo. Guess I'll have to make a return visit. Wonder if I can talk Gary into another visit? Ha!
Great zoo, right up there with the San Diego Zoo; great sculpture, worth a visit for sure.
Now if this rain would stop or at least slow down a bit, I could visit more potteries here in Seagrove. More about those later.
