Platform for Art

When in London in 2003 I saw these wonderful bird sculptures from Zimbabwe displayed in various underground stops. 

 London, 2003

For many more interesting and creative shadow shots, go visit Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday.

I very much like how they displayed the birds! Do you know what they are? I'm trying to figure out if I recognize any of them...is that a peacock in the top right? :-)

You were doing some creative camera work a long time ago! 2003! Very nice. Shadowy creatures in an underground stop...but not spooky at all.

I don't understand, though, why they weren't stolen or vandalized?

Hi Francisca: Thanks for that info on the birds in the subway...that 'splains things to me. However, some thieves are crazy! ;-)

Did you see Tapirgal's comment on the "elk"? I think she thinks it's a cow. I also think she may be right!

And, yes, it was a little tipsy.

So, where are you? Reclining on some south seas beach with nary a care in your head?
