9 Skeptical Turtles by RandyHand 9 Skeptical Turtles by RandyHand
These are the maquette versions of the 31" tall Skeptical Turtle I had sculpted a while back.
My client in Kauai decided she wanted to give each of the board members at Na Aina Kai Botanical/Sculpture Gardens a Skeptical Turtle maquette.
They all got dropped off at the shippers yesterday and should make their way to Kauai in the next few weeks.
Each one is approx 10 inches tall.

Cool.

Can't help but think that looks like the United Nations and about the speed they work - then say "Nah, fuckit. Too much hassle"

So cool! Could be a line from a famous Christmas song: "…..9 skeptical turtles, 8 frogs a critiquing, 7 Llamas a doubting, 6 dingos a child snatching, 5 bluuue whaaaales!, 4 cynical beetles, 3 dubious bats, 2 worried worms and a hippo in a pear tree!!!" I can see an art installation here!!!

LOL!...I would love to do an installation of that size!
Quite the imagination you have my friend.. :)
That sounds like a good children's book as well...hee hee.

A children's book based on an alternative Twelve Days of Christmas? That's not a bad idea actually…I'll put it on my list of 'things to possibly do when I retire' (it's a big list!)

Could you put my name somewhere in the intro. as far as inspiration?...hee hee. :)
