That Vision Thing

.
That Vision Thing

Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis County is one of the gems of the area. Mrs. Laumeier left her 72 acre estate to the people. It is now full of beautiful and strange work. There's nothing quite like it anywhere and admission is free.

This is Tony Tasset's Eye. I'd guess it's about 3 meters in diameter. It's fascinating and creepy. Visitors love to take one another's picture in front of it.

I only have eye for you B. This is great and the tree gives perspective, but you knew that!

Gives a new meaning to being "eye-balled." Terrific when communities have facilities such as this with free admission.
