IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER

Work of Art

“Art” isn’t just paintings and sculptures, it can be anything in which we find beauty and meaning — even food. Show us a thing, place, or person that’s a work of art to you.


This antique carved carousel lion is art to me. Beautiful carving, wonderful expression … and a child — or grownup — can sit on his back and ride him while the music plays. Before we had a name for it, this was interactive art!

      Thank you 🙂 Maybe you’ve guessed. I love carousels. Since I was a little girl and the sound of a calliope is a siren’s call.

    This lion is much more beautiful than the horsie they had out in front of K-Mart when I was a kid!

      Isn’t it wonderful? I love old carousel animals. The carvers put so much imagination and love into these creatures 🙂
