He’s pretty impressive!
He’s a bit special isn’t he. He’s beautiful close up 🙂
That’s very freaky! And bless your little man hiding behind it 🙂
I didn’t think he was scary until you all pointed it out, I guess in a certain light, perhaps 🙂
I’m sorry but that is really freaky!
LOL, never saw it that way before. He’s a new memorial bench in the park. The carving is beautiful.
Sorry – didn’t mean to sound dismissive – it is super-impressive, but just the head gear makes it look a bit spooky!
Haha don’t worry, everyone else seems to have been a bit creeped out by it too 🙂 xx
Oh wow, is that made from wood? Looks amazing
Yes it’s a hand carved memorial bench in our local park. We love it 🙂
Wow is that carved out of wood? Think I’d probably jump out if my skin if I happened to sit down next to him at night.
Ha! Yes he’s hand carved by a local artist. The boy loves him 🙂
Wow that’s a bit scary lol but fab.
Brilliant isn’t it, thanks for your comment x
Interesting statute….and certainly makes a change from the gnomes and meercats. Great idea.
Thank you, he’s in our local park and is much admired 🙂
Ohh that’s very eery.
I guess he is in the half light, we’re very fond of him 🙂
You reckon? He’s the new memorial bench in Fletcher Moss 🙂
Clever sculpture, and nice to see someone peeking round.
There are a few in our local parks by the same artist, they’re lovely!
Wow what a great carving! Where is this?
It’s in Fletcher Moss park in Didsbury, Manchester. Good isn’t it!
That must have taken some carving! 😀
The artist lives locally and produces some seriously beautiful sculptures. This one is his latest!
Lovely picture – is that a lacrosse player? Scariest game I ever played – never a proper game unless someone went home with a broken limb!
That sounds about right. It’s a memorial bench for a local boy, not sure of the story behind it but its a lovely tribute.
That is fairly creepy…
Ha, you think so, you’re probably right, wouldn’t want to encounter it in the dark!
Looks like your little one is all ready to say ‘Boo’ to it – though I think I’d be inclined to leave it well alone – scary!
He is fascinated by it, every time we walk past he stops for a chat with it 🙂
It is a bit scary, I love how your little boy is peeking out from behind!
Thank you, he loves this sculpture and plays with it all the time, been waiting ages to get a half decent pic of it 🙂
That is awesome even if a little scary lol x x x
Thanks, we think so too 🙂
Peek-a-boo. No wonder he’s hiding behind, that sculpture is freaky scary!
Lol, thank you, we love it, some day we might get a little sculpture done in our garden 🙂
Bit scary! haha!
Ha, hasn’t thought of it like that before but now it’s been pointed out…a little, yes 🙂
Wow that must have taken a long time to carve out, it’s beautiful 🙂
Thank you, we think so too 🙂
Impressive stuff 🙂
I know, must’ve taken ages to carve!
Wow that’s clever xx
Thank you, it’s really impressive close up too!
What a great sculpture.
Thank you, there are a few dotted around the village. Great for kids to explore 🙂
Wow! Not an every day sight! Brave little one, too 😉
No, I don’t suppose it is. He loves that sculpture though 🙂
Wow, beautiful but a little scary.
Thank you, we love that park 🙂
Fab photo! What an interesting statue x
Thank you, it’s a memorial bench of a local lad who sadly died x
very intriguing. love how the little one is hiding behind it so it doesnt see him! i would too!
Hehe, he is a cheeky little monkey. Thanks for commenting 🙂
What an amazing carving the detail is phenomenal, why a lacrosse player I wonder…?
Thanks for commenting. It’s a memorial bench to a lacrosse player I think 🙂
I think this is a lovely photograph, I would love to examine him more closely close up. I always have a lot of admiration for anyone who can make things from a natural material. X
Thanks for commenting, I love wood carvings too, there is a huge owl in another local park which is amazing!
Wow, not something you see in the park every day 😉
No, it’s a bit different isn’t it!
What an intriguing carving. It looks a little like a knight as well. My boys would be fascinated by it. It is a great picture.
I’d never looked at it like that before, brilliant, thanks 🙂
What a great carving….
Thank you, we’re very proud of it locally 🙂
That’s a fab carving, and I love the way your boy is peeking around it 🙂
He’s being his usual cheeky, inquisitive self 🙂 thanks for commenting x
Impressive carving! Love little man peaking out from behind 🙂
Hehe thanks and thanks for commenting!
What an impressive carving, did make me chuckle seeing little man peeping from behind!
Haha thank you, really wanted to get him in as it offered some perspective on the thing x
Thanks very much for all your kind comments. This was a pressure job, in view of the circumstances, but was really well received by the family and friends.
Thank you so much for commenting Andy. I’m fascinated by it and I was there the day it went up and the day the family gathered around it.
Are you able to give any information as to the story behind it? I can’t seem to find anything online and it’s such a unique and beautiful piece.
Thank you 🙂
Oh wow, this is amazing! Quite spooky too!
