I draw and paint but would love to be able to sculpt. The greatest problem, apart from lack of talent, would be studio room - difficult in a two-bedroom apartment.

Our minds were ad idem today, Bill. Interesting sculpture... the use of the rope to climb the coconut palm is novel to me.

That is quite sculpture. It captures the agility and strength needed to climb the tree.
