Worshipping the Head

Worshipping the Head

So, I figure since everyone else seems to be posting current stuff and the weather is cold – I should interject with a lovely photo from summers’ past.

This wonderful pic was taken at the Taconic Sculpture Garden in Spencertown, NY, just off the Taconic Parkway. As you are driving north on the parkway, this head suddenly appears at the top of a hill for all to see. Upon first glance it’s sort of a shock. We saw it for a few years while going up to visit family in Kinderhook and had dubbed it “The Head”. We finally decided to go and see what “The Head” was all about. Well, after a 20 minute drive, we came to a house where there are many, many sculptures scattered across the immense property. They are in the woods, on the fields and in the gardens. Apparently, they can be bought from a Mr. Ron Kinwit who works and lives in the house.

We spent a good hour photographing ourselves amongst the various pieces and then went on our merry way….redubbing it “The Head House”

    I love surpise sculpture on the side of the road! A couple of weeks ago we were driving and spotted two whale tails emerging from a hill — nowhere near the ocean. Sort of like your last picture, except with no nude body attached.

    I’m not sure what I would do with a sculpture that size but they are fantastic.
