2 of my favorite things

Horses. Beach.
and bonus....Robert Louis Stevenson.
"We consume the carcasses of creatures of like appetites, passions, and organs as our own,
and fill the slaughterhouses daily with screams of pain and fear."


from here....

last summer Mark and I went to the Greg Kucera Gallery, and this is part of what we saw....

It looks like driftwood, but many of the horse sculptures are really made of bronze and copper. Cast into metal, they were first made of wood. some were...Madrone.....  that tree is one of my favorites. It's a West Coast me. Others were first made of tropical woods...then cast in metal.
Seven Bronze Sculptures,was the show, and the artist.
