« Spiky Lawn » by Bruno Maroni in Mishima City!

SN3O5231

If you have the chance to visit Mishima City in the eastern part of Shizuoka Prefecture I would recommend you to visit the Clematis Gardens, the more for it that they offfer a free limousine service from and to Mishima JR Station!

The Gardens include a large museum showing the works of Bruno Maroni but his most remarkable creations are exhibited all year round in the very large park either on the luscious lawns or in front of other buildings!

SN3O5232

What could a lone man do walking through pikes on a lawn?

SN3O5234

The grass is integral part of the whole art work!

SN3O5235

Is the man carefully walking in awe?

SN3O5236

Or is he half containing his laugh?

SN3O5237

Or has he found a new world beyond the grassy spike tunnel?

SN3O5229

SN3O5239

I had a good laugh at this particular statue as the Japanese are a very voyeuristic people!

SN3O5240

And the laugh continued when looking at the man from the back!

SN3O5241

Is he surprised, worried or perplexed?

SN3O5246

Very important detail!

Sushi Bus in Shizuoka City!

SN3O5296

Took this picture today in front of Shizuoka JR Station!

Actually a couple of years ago Shizutetsu Line (private) had photographs of real sushi on this bus, but they switched to drawings instead. Someone must have complained about picture rights……………

SN3O5243

It is when you look at this statue from other angles that you realize why I called it a « Dismembered Man »!

SN3O5247

And from that angle it is difficult to realize what it represents!

SN3O5254

The Man himself seems apprehensive or sad?

SN3O5255

He is apparently looking at his past…..

Scarab by Bernard Buffet in Mishima City!

SN3O5222

If you visit Mishima City in the Eastern part of Shizuoka Prefecture you ought to visit The Clematis Garden and the Bernard Buffet Museum in one single trip as they are very near each other.
You will be surprised at the amount of art on show!

SN3O5224

It was brought to japan all the way to Mishima as it had been created in 1975 some time before Bernard Buffet came to establish himself in Mishima City!

SN3O5223

You will see this enormous scarab statue by Bernard Buffet who also painted the same on a big canvas on show inside the Museum (no pictures allowed there unfortunately but definitely worth a grand visit!

SN3O5226

In full flight through a rainbow?

SN3O5225

A bit frightening through this angle, though!

A side view will make it a hard guess!

Another possibility at an angle from the back!

Can you guess what the next picture of an insect statue might be?

Skiing Ants in Mishima City!

SN3O5144

I’ve just come from a short trip and overnight stay in Mishima City and Izu Peninsula where I had the occasion to discover a few interesting sites!

SN3O5143

I didn’t know that ants could ski, but now I ave the proof!
This one was pretty big standing/sliding on a high pedestal in a small park!

SN3O5139

I even found a smaller one among the chrysanthemums!

SN3O5140

Note that is is completely made of metal with a body formed by a frame around a stone!

SN3O5141

This ant must be a lady ant!

SN3O5142
