Unexpected Sculpture.

This place is on Lydia Mountain near Stanardsville. It looks like an old schoolhouse that became an art gallery but has since closed.

I stopped because I spotted sculpture out front. The steel horse appears to be welded of vehicle parts. I don't know what the kokopelli is made of except that it is metal.

I'm afraid my picture of the dolphin sculpture isn't too clear because the metal is similar in tone to the forest behind it. But note the sphere above its nose. Dolphin is playing with a ball!

  1. I would really love that dolphin in my yard...such a shame the building isn't being is very quaint...thanks for sharing at CountryScapes and have a great week

  2. Hello, they are all cool sculptures. I like the horse and dolphin. Wishing you a happy day!

  3. ...what fun sculptures, they sure can be difficult to photograph. Making something of beauty out of junk is net. Thanks Linda for sharing.

  4. I see the dolphin just fine Linda! All three sculptures are fun! I wonder what happened to the artist and/or the gallery owner .. it was a nice unexpected find for you (and us) but I am kind of worried about them just sitting out there all alone!

  5. Different and fun sculptures, nice to see.

    All the best Jan

  6. These are interesting and unusual sculptures. I had never heard of the Kokopelli and had to look that one up.
