U is for unusual...

U is for unusual...
(Continuing my series on the Mornington Peninsula)

There are many unusual, unexpected, unique sights to be seen round the Mornington Peninsula.
But perhaps the most unusual sight I have seen recently must be the sculptures on display round Montalto Vineyard at Red Hill.
Many seem to totally overhaul the whole concept of sculpture as a solid mass.
The one above utilises the landscape as part of its substance,.

Above are huge sculptures of pukeko, right near where the real pukekos (much much smaller) wander by the water.

A discarded tractor gets a new identity.

eccentric art work
sparks the imagination
and the perception

And this is one of 3 shapes willingly collecting Autumn leaves...evolving art?

Now that tractor is very very cool.

What interesting objects and so varied in their solidity. I've never seen a pukeko but the artist has mad them look very active.

I really like all of these Gemma, but the first is extra special the way it incorporates it's environment. You really have to admire the way the artistic mind works.
