The Strangest Thing

16th August 2017
Charging about today and I stumbled upon this:



I knew it was there, just forgot!

I love this installation by Ulverston's guerilla artist Loki who has extended himself into other South Lakes towns - in this case Grange-over-Sands.

The plaque infront of it reads:

"WE'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER DUCK POND

On loan from the Natural History Museum, this sculpture from an unknown, but obviously talented artist depicts the early days of village duck ponds and the inherent dangers they posed. This scene recreates the infamous event that took place in Shropshire around 1968 which led to the government legislation that made it illegal for local councils to dump toxic waste in village duck ponds. Since this law was passed there have been no reported cases of mutated animals attacking people.

Even this sculpture was made of fiber glass not plaster so as not to pollute the water."

In other news - I seem to have lost my Getty Account, so I guess I will have to put a submission together and try to get back on the books again. I really need to get more up to speed with my submissions to the agencies again! I used to do pretty well out of Alamy particularly but have had little in the last few years.

Perhaps I need to knuckle down!
