I love that art piece :) Very nice! I've never been to New Mexico, but I have always wanted to visit. I've only heard great things. Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday!

Eve said...

New Mexico is for lovers. That's a very interesting piece of sculpture.

I live in NM too! Silver City. I didn't think anyone else lived here. *lol*
Beautiful pictures. :)

That's an interesting piece. I wonder what's that. Okay, you can call me a dumb-o for that. Heheh.

BTW, New Mexico conjures romantic thought..Heheh..although I have never been there.

Interesting piece! Love NM as well although I haven't been in years.

What an interesting construction :D
Would love to go to New Mexico one day!

That is a beautiful sculpture! I've never seen anything like it. Happy WW

This is such a ‘familiar’ figure in the American Southwest, I assumed everyone would recognize Kokopelli. I realize that assumption was faulty … so I’m adding the ‘link’ to the Wikipedia reference here belatedly. Perhaps I’ll revise the post later as well if time permits and memory doesn’t fail me ;--)

Sandy – New Mexico is certainly worth a visit … especially Taos and Santa Fe.

Eve – Hmmm, I didn’t know that … but I can believe it.

Sher – As I explained when I visited your blog, I don’t live in NM … but I visited Taos last summer for a couple of weeks and encountered this metal sculpture there.

Zamejias – Eve said something similar about NM. I’ve included a reference at the top of this comment to provide information about the figure depicted.

Mama Geek – This was one of many metal sculptures near a restaurant we ate dinner at when the retreat ended. I thought it the most recognizable.

Roger – I’m happy you think so ;--)

Bren – I hadn’t been to the Southwest for many years until last summer. I enjoyed my 3 week trip through the territory by car and stopped at many interesting places along the way.

Nicole – It’s certainly worth a visit if you have the time. I have more photos of this area in the sidebar of my other blog.

Kat – Thanks, and happy WW to you as well ;--)

I appreciate your comments and apologize for failing to identify the sculpture in the post. Live and learn, right? Right! I hope you had a wonderful Wednesday and are enjoying the rest of your week also.
Hugs and blessings,

Nice choice for WW. I love your thought for the day at the bottom of your WW posting.

Karen said...

I'm having a flashback...I'm so grateful when you post Taos pics--it's like a warm hug through the internet.

storyteller said...

Betty – Thanks. I really did think everyone would recognize Kokopelli. Silly me ;--)

Karen – I’m glad you enjoy them. I like ‘revisiting’ that time as well. I just read your Friday Feast and loved it! I’ll have to give it a go sometime. I had trouble with my 2nd Haiku today and it might have been a good time … if I’d remembered.

I appreciate each of you visiting and sharing your thoughts.
Hugs and blessings,
