Crich Museum - The Wood Carvings 3/5

The third sculpture taken on the Woodland Trail at Crich Tramway Museum is the Giant Ant. This ant is designed to be climbed on and behind the ant is a sculpture of a nest with carved eggs in front of it. We took several pictures of ourselves sitting on this, Maureens brother was with us so it was nice to get several combinations, especially of the two of them together, something that, sadly, doesn't happen very often.

Je n'aime pas trop cette bête-là .

Well it's not every day you get the chance to pose on an insect!
Brian Walbey: I guess children would love having their pictures taken on this.

One of the best sculptural wood carvings I have seen
Brian Walbey: It covers quite a large area.
How wonderful, Brian. I LOVE interactive art like this. And how wonderful for Maureen and her brother, giving scale to this delight.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie.
I really like this one Brian, and a good picture of those siblings together.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad.

a very fine carving - Maureen and his bro look like ants compared with the giant ant!
Brian Walbey: It covers quite a large area Philine.

Not your everyday ant - can carry adult humans. To think it is made of wood - they would have carved away a number of pocket knives, I believe.
Brian Walbey: It covers a large area, I bet children love having their picture taken on it.
I love sculpture that can be climbed on by children as I have mentioned before. Nice shot of Maureen and Bro.
Brian Walbey: I bet children love having their picture taken on it.
This one I have seen. Nice picture of Maureen
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill.
you have a memorable shot at this place, Brian, with this most unusual (i cannot recall having seen an ant be the subject of fine art) and well done carving.
Brian Walbey: I bet children love having their picture taken on it.
I like it!
