One of my favorite of the Breceda sculptures.

A tight place. It's really pretty human. Neither of them wants to dodge and yet the word pocket says that the wiser gives a way

What an imposing PoV of this scorpion with its sharp stinger!! I wonder what the grasshopper has for its defense?

Superbe sculpture et un animal assez fantastique qui survivrait à des radiations atomiques six fois plus fortes qu'un humain ne pourrait supporter.
Belle compo.
Bonne journée Steve.

Seems like the grasshopper doesn't stand a chance unless he can jump high enough. Wonderful point of view! I really like that. These are fabulous sculptures.
