Dragon Park, part two — “The Faces”

I was almost child-like in my glee as I discovered new themes and objects woven into the giant sculpture in my recent visit to what is often referred to as “Dragon Park.”  (See yesterday’s post.) The artist, Pedro Silva, also piqued my interest and curiosity.   He refers to this genre as “Public Art.

I’m sure the Nashville “locals” already know the background of the artist and this park, but I found exploring the park with my camera refreshing, exhilarating, and simply fun!

Some of the faces in the mosaic sculpture:

    The first face is a little creepy. I wonder if this scares the kids.

    Puna, the only squeals I heard from the children playing in the park were squeals of delight! 🙂

    I like the mosaic faces, the concrete ones not so much. Wonder why they covered only some?

    It’s a fascinating structure – kids always love the novel, the different. Who doesn’t? I’d like to play there too!

    each face is better than the next….
