I might be a bit late to the party with this one but as the old saying goes, ‘better late than…’ whatever. This is my contribution to Sue’s challenge over at A Word In Your Ear.
Each week she picks a word from the dictionary to challenge us and this week the word is ‘metallic’. So I dug up some photos of some beautiful metal sculptures that I stumbled upon in the Dunedin Botanical Gardens, New Zealand.
The sculptures were life size, incredibly detailed depictions of Peter Pan. They looked completely at home amongst the incredible flowers and manicured lawns of the Botanic Gardens. Tinkerbell whispering endless secrets to Peter Pan. The Lost Boys were curled up amongst the roots of the tree stump Peter Pan stood upon. The sculpture was decorated with all sorts of beautiful woodland creatures, such as this little guy. He was no bigger than a matchbox. To one side of Peter was this gorgeous sculpture of Wendy, Michael and John Darling, flying off to Neverland. I thought this plaque was the perfect surreal touch to the entire masterpiece.
