Dreaming of Childhood

The sculpture in this picture is David Wynne’s Children of Tresco and the work stands in the Tresco Gardens in the Isles of Scilly.  It is a wonderfully expressive sculpture, full of the fun and vitality of childhood.  For those of us who are older it evokes memories and smiles and encourages us to dream and fantasize about the days when we too could play with not a care in the world.

  1. Thank you for sharing this wonderful sculpture! 🙂

  2. Beautiful – as you say, it’s a very expressive sculpture. My last post was about sculpture and there’ll be another next week. Sculpture says so much more to me than 2D art and this one lifts my heart. 🙂

    Still can Louis:) Let us play without a care in the world! 🙂

  4. I’m sure you can and I hope you always will. It’s just that it becomes increasingly difficult when the bits start dropping off!!

  6. The background is also lovely, it amazingly ‘plays’ with the sculpture, enhancing it – do you know what it is?
