A quick post to cheer up a rather cold, winter’s Monday. Yesterday I was surprised to see a large sculpture has been put up close to Oxenholme railway station. A rather spectacular stag.
On closer inspection I could see it is made from old flattened oil cans and scrap metal. Ironic as it stands at the entrance to a car park, n’est-ce pas?
After a quick search on t’internet I have discovered it is the work of artist Stewart Williams and was one of four sculptures used in last year’s Kendal Torchlight Parade. Apparently the stag and other sculptures (including another of Stewart’s) were lit up for the annual night time procession . It must have looked incredible.
Before I go here’s one last look at Stewart’s wonderful sculpture.
Have a happy Monday.
Perhaps the stag sculpture is an honorable reminder to hunting season where you live.
I had a chuckle at this with me being a vegan and my long passed mother being an armchair hunt saboteur who was disgruntled with her County – in those days two counties Westmorland and Cumberland- ‘anthem’ being ‘Do you k’en John Peel’. 😆
Vegetarians need more non- animals statues – don’t you think?
All good as long as no person or animals mistreated … although a giant swede …. Wonderful. 😂
