  4. Bonjour,

    Très belles et originales ces sculptures. 😀
    On appelle souvent “art” des choses nettement moins élaborées, et aux formes moins harmonieuses.

    Elles sont sur les bords de routes, pas faites avec les carcasses de voitures accidentées, quand-même ?…
    Franchement, elles mériteraient d’être réunies là où on peut prendre le temps de les regarder… sans avoir à quitter la route des yeux et risquer de créer d’autres accidents !! 😳

  7. Hi,
    I think that is ingenious, what a great idea, and I must admit I do think they look rather good, and I also love all the colors. Great pictures.

  9. got a load of old injectors and fual pumps if anyone can make a scupture with them haha Recon diesel injectors

    • Hi. All these art are made by a female artist. I think that the Lady could make art from fuel pumps also, but the distance is enormous to travel there.

  10. Very cool! I think it’s very imaginative to use old car parts to make cows. Who would come up with that! I like the way the cows are made colorful by the random car parts. 🙂

    • Hello Suvi.

      Our country offers some times “shocking” and stunning things. I am glad that You loved these cows.

      Have a great start of new week!

      • …there could be so many expressions of art, couldn’t they!
        Personally, I love both classical and modern art!

        • Ciao Anna.

          I agree You. I love all kind of art, if it such that I understand it. 🙂 Upcoming autumn will bring one post presenting a statue park in Finland, which I have not yet presented yet

          Have a nice day!

    • Hello Carol.

      They were big indeed. Nowadays they have moved to some other place. My country is “full” of art. This is one of the most amazing place:
