Doll on Stick

In my studio there are assorted objects.
I have future plans for some of them,
others I collect just because I like the
look of them as they are.

The dolls head was lying on a footpath and
I decided to give it a home.

The forked stick is awaiting the sharpening of its feet
into points. Every now and again I whittle

Sometimes visitors make subtle adjustments to
the position of these objects that are lying around. In this case a visitor
has pushed it a bit further and put the head
on top of the stick.

The result is something where the whole is greater than the sum of
the parts. I like rearrangements like this. Thank you Jim.


Almost a couple of weeks ago I went on an early moring walk along the margins of Oakura Beach, about 15 minutes drive south of where I am right now, sitting on my Aeron Chair.
As I was returning to the car in the rain I noticed this doll perched in the Muhlenbeckia.
