Out in the suburbs in St. Louis County is Laumeier Sculpture Park, a real delight. Some rich person of that name left her 72 acre estate to the people of metropolitan St. Louis. It has grown into an internationally-recognized open-air museum. The lawns and wooded paths contain an eye-popping variety of large-scale sculpture. Mrs. Laumeier's former home serves as a museum for smaller work.
The park's web site does not identify the work in this picture, which is about 4 meters tall. I was leaving the park when I saw it and did not look for an explanatory sign. Interpretation of the art is up to you. There are lots more interesting works and I'll post photos of some in the near future.
