Silencers Are Golden 2

By pamelajean
(I uploaded this as a version in 2010 and now feel it deserves an individual airing).

Continuing my series of sculptures.
After the strange sheep, another weird offering.
A piece of artistic recycling that I found at the Eden Project in 2009 (so they may not still be there).
Bright sunny coloured exhausts growing amongst the Mediterranean plants and yet not looking out of place.
Such a novel idea. I think they look like strange alien creatures with long legs.

Thanks to all who took the time to look, vote, award and comment on my sheep.

A novel idea - don't remember seeing them on my visit in 2019 but with so much to see I could easily have missed them.

Silence is golden, especially if you have a cork stuck in your pipe! Very colourful sculpture, using everyday objects.

How clever !
Very interesting especially now since thieves are ripping out catalytic
Converters from underneath vehicles for the platinum and precious heavy metals inside them. Those sculptures have both intrinsic and fenceable value .
