My World Tuesday - Animal Sculptures

It's time to visit My World Tuesday again and see many interesting things from around our small world. Here are a couple more sculptures from downtown Colorado Springs. This first one is called Double Eagle and it's by Jim McCain. I really like the curves on this one and how the two eagles fit together.
The second is Bison “Bison Americanus” by Richard Jagoda. It's a very interesting contrast with the huge animal full of holes making it much lighter.
I need to go back downtown and spend more time walking around, there's lots more to see.

  1. I like the bison...although I'm sure a real bison looks a lot meaner than that! The smooth lines of the eagle sculpture are beautiful, too :D

  5. Two beautiful and very different sculptures; I favor the double eagle. Could it be mother and chick.

  15. man i love sculptures. Both of these are great but I dig the buffalo more. I've been living in the south way too long and miss my western roots. My grandparents had a farm and horses and cattle when I was boy and there is something so calming about these animals they are so stoic.

  19. Maybe you'll find it interesting: Jagoda means blueberry. Anyway I like the eagles, so non naturalistic.

  20. Great shots! The tree makes the second one look like a giant 'chia bison'.

  22. Many years ago ( more than 30 year) I was at a park near the Niagara falls. A bison was giving birth. it was incredible. The keepers were trying to keep the others away.
