The Whale and the Whale Ornament

The Whale and the Whale Ornament

Sun 10.23.16 – This morning I went to Paige H’s baby shower at her parent’s house. Her mother had the best whale sculpture with a whale ornament in its mouth on the living room’s fireplace mantle. It was lit in such a way to both reveal the whale sculpture and create mystery.

This made me very happy.

Three Squares Gyratory at The Getty Center

Fri 10.07.11 – Erika and I went to the Getty Center to see the Pacific Standard Time exhibit and we walked out to the Gardens to see the sculpture. I video’d George Rickey’s “Three Squares Gyratory” as it looks unwieldy but the squares moved surprisingly well in little wind. It was lovely and peaceful.

But it already exhibits many of the characteristics of fertility figurines carved millenniums later.
