Easton Walled Garden 3/10

Our visit to Easton took place on Spring Bank Holiday Sunday last year and as you will see from the photos in this series it was far from being a very sunny day although it did remain dry during the time of our visit. We came upon this rather unusual sculpture in one area of the garden.

reminds me of geography lessons showing the axis tilt of the Earth, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I did wonder myself if that is what this is all about.

I thought just like Ayush, Brian.
Brian Walbey: So did I Ray.
That is unusual - but I rather like it!
Brian Walbey: Ayush thinks it might represent the tilt of the Earth, I wouldn't argue with that.

A very pleasing sculpture, Brian
Brian Walbey: Ayush thinks it might represent the tilt of the Earth, I wouldn't argue with that.
Very pleasing to the eye, Brian...so simple and yet profound.
Brian Walbey: Ayush thinks it might represent the tilt of the Earth, I wouldn't argue with that.

The inclination of the globe suggests it is spinning
Brian Walbey: Ayush thinks it might represent the tilt of the Earth, I wouldn't argue with that.
Now I really like that sculpture Brian, I'd like one at home.
Brian Walbey: You weren't far away from here last week, you could have nipped in and secreted it away in the boot of your car smile
A recent addition I suspect Brian
Brian Walbey: I think they are developing that part of the garden and that sculpture looks fairly new.

Layers of slate? Unusual, yes.
Brian Walbey: Ayush thinks it might represent the tilt of the Earth, I wouldn't argue with that.
I wonder what a sandstone sphere would look like? I love it!
Brian Walbey: Ayush thinks it might represent the tilt of the Earth, I wouldn't argue with that. It would also look good in Sandstone, you have lots round your way you could donate smile

I think the earth is round....and so is this globe and I think it fits in the scene... A wonderful picture. Is it sleight???
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, I think it must be slate, although not from that area, and I guess the tilt represents the earths tilt.

Now call me fussy but this would have looked much better as a water feature; please pass that on to the owners if you visit again.
Brian Walbey: That's a thought Alan. I think it is rather nice, I wouldn't mind having it in my garden, perhaps Maureen could knock one up for us as she's the gardener of the house smile
One could mistake it for a large ball of wool!
Brian Walbey: It would make a pretty big jumper then Tom smile
i like this sculpture Brian... it look like it was carved out of a black sedimentary rock formation....petersmile
Brian Walbey: It's certainly very clever carving.
