A Rusty Safari

On the way to Mt. Rainier a few weekends ago with the far-flung artgirls, we passed the home of Dan Klennert.  Why is that important, you ask?  Because his property is filled with his amazing, ENORMOUS, rusty sculpture, all made from mundane metal and wooden bits. 

And we are not talking ORDINARY...no sirree.  We're talking pig-cycles, horseshoe seahorses (say THAT 3 times fast), driftwood deer, hungry dinosaurs and skeletal ghostriders.  Don't believe me?  See for yourself!

BIZARRELY, the metal giraffe I previously blogged about (on Vashon Island in front of the fair trade shop by the same name) was NOT made by Dan Klennert, but rather by a Vashon Island artist.  What are the chances there would be multiple sculptors who fashion huge metal giraffes in the same small area.  Dunno...maybe it's all the rusty bits laying about in the rain...
