Jelly Nice Day Out

By SlowSong
The Jelly Baby Family at Marble Arch, sculptor Mauro Perucchetti.
Made up of Father, Mother, 2 teenagers, a young child and twins.
Part of the City of Sculpture Festival, Westminster.
Rather cute, despite weighing 3.2 tons.

Thank you for your votes on the rather incongruous horse sculpture uploaded previously. Statuary in London seems to be an ongoing theme of mine lately, although not intended. The nice weather's just made it that way. Many thanks for looking.

I love the way this set gradually gives more information, and an increasing sense of scale. V1 is really quite mysterious in that respect - it looks big, but how big? Hope this lot stay around until our next visit

It says on the website that they're there till April 2011 so I don't expect they'll be around much longer. Sad

3.2 tons? Those are serious jelly babies. I like V1 best. It has a slightly surreal quality. I thought you had done it in a studio at first - until I realised that the blue background was the sky.

A jelly fine set of images, Chris! Grin V1 has to be my fave, but it's nice to see the wider views, which give a sense of scale and show us how large they are Smile

V1 is beautifully presented and it's great how the other versions add to the experience. I love 'em!

A super set, Chris, showing us all sides of the Jelly Baby Family. V1 is absolutely fantastic, the light, the gleam, the curves and reflections. Stunning!

A nice series of image, Chris! I prefer the 1st and 3rd versions. I like the bold colours and shapes of the 1st version, and I like the perspective from which you captured the sculptures in the 3rd image! Smile
