Amazing Sculptures

Categories: British Columbia.

Just look at these amazing sculptures that we saw at the Esquimalt Lagoon and Royal Bay beach.  The artists used driftwood and shells to create these gorgeous creatures.

This one, titled McGnarly the Beach Ent created by Drifted Creations, was seen on our visit in December 2018.

He is about 10 feet high and is the guardian of the lagoon.  This artist has other creations in Campbell River (dinosaur, eagle, whale) and Oyster River and lots of other places.

These are recent additions to the lagoon by artist Paul Lewis.  Our daughter took these photos and sent them to me as they were added after our trip out west.  You can be sure this will be top of the list to visit when we go out west the next time.

I can’t wait to see these sculptures in person.  The Esquimalt Lagoon is a bird sanctuary and a place we visit a few times when we are in BC.

This mammoth and her young were seen at Royal Bay.  Absolutely amazing.  Royal Bay is a lovely new beach area not that far from where our family lives.

I hope these two artists create other sculptures for display on various beaches.

Do you have interesting sculptures near you?

ABC Wednesday is up to S.  S for sculptures.
