Dreams of flight


At my town's local sculpture park this work by Donald Buglass is one of many pieces of artworks. Names "dreams of flight" it's a playful interactive installation by the artist and also represents deeper meanings and various metaphors of mankind's desire for exploration/collection of knowledge. The figurehead represents the Haast Eagle.

Happy New Year for 2021. Our New Year's eve came and went very quietly, no parties, no fireworks and no screaming people. It's like it eased itself in without anyone knowing and I wonder what 2022 will bring? New dreams...new understandings. I don't normally make new year resolutions but I think the following 4 will work for me:
1. Take more photos
2. Read more books
3. Blog more
4. Spend less time on social media because it's a toxic dump

I love this sculpture. So fun and symbolic.

Good luck on your resolutions. There is a way to make social media less toxic. It took a long time and it worked but now my facebook is so borriinng. But it doesn't jack my blood pressure up any longer.

I would not disagree with your resolutions: particularly the last one.

What the......? I was thinking when I saw the photo. At first glance I was thinking Viking ship. But then NO. A sculture?? Not sure I liek it but at least I reacted :) :)
COOL!
Wishing you a great year 2022.

Great art and love the symbolism. The resolutions all make sense but F doesn't use social media (apart from my blog) so has resolved instead to waste less of everything. Let's see how that goes. She lives with Mr B - who simply doesn't get it!
Such an interesting piece. I wonder what the mole represents?

Resolutions are ok if you stick to them. I don't bother to make them in the first place.
I thought the boat(sculpture) was a float for a water parent. Looks a joke to me. Happy New Year

The boat made into a piece of art is beautiful and symbolic. Like your resolutions, been off facebook for five years now. What a great difference no more BS to read. :) Happy New Year to you too. You might want to change the 2021 t0 2022, it's so easy to forget. Reminds me of checks I used to write, I'd always mess up the date. :)

Love the sculpture.
Here it was quiet, too. Quiet and un-dangerous. Bet the animals were happy, too.
Good resolutions, too.

I like your resolutions, Amy. That's a great sculpture.
I love the oolourful sculpture. I don't make resolutions, it's too easy for me to forget to make them happen. - Margy
