Weekend Reflections - Philbrook Hippo

This hippopotamus can be found in the Philbrook Garden.  It was made from chrome steel automobile bumpers  in 1973 by American artist John Kearney.

When I move into my new, smaller pad in a couple of weeks' time there is a minute "private" patch of garden where this chap would sit/stand beautifully = love it.

You making a puzzle out of this one? Yikes! It would be complex.

Am I following you or are you following me, Bill! :-D We're playing the same memes. This cool chrome steel hippo is a fabulous one for both!

Ah, the days of chrome bumpers, that's one way to immortalize them!

I wouldn't like to bump into this shiny hippo on the walk home from the pub.

Good shot of this sculpture.
I like your choice for black and white.

Regards!

As teenager growing up in Muskogee, trips to Philbrook were often and fun. I don't remember this hippo, but if one were built using car parts today, I doubt it would look as cool.

What a fun shot! All that chrome must have been tricky to photograph.
