My Walk this Week 127 – Autumn Morning

My walk this week is on a beautiful Autumn morning in a place well known to me but always new as well. The fact that I have seen the scenes and details of this Welsh valley and woodland many times make them no less enjoyable.

There are changes of course since I was last here – strong winds have brought down more trees and branches but the ground underfoot, in spite of the return of notable rainfall, is still dry and firm.

Long in the Tooth – The Art of Dental Decay at Kunsthuis

During my walk this week around Kunsthuis Gallery and Gardens I came upon one or two unusual pieces of sculpture. With the children’s play garden in the background this artwork, which appears to me to be an extracted molar, might scare off any children with a fear of the dentist – not an uncommon phobia! The decay on this dental presentation is quite natural but relates very well to the growth and erosion that can take place on uncared for teeth. However, it was a little unexpected in this beautiful garden setting. The comb-like sharp pointed teeth of the thistles are in better condition even though it is the end of the season and they completing their cycle for the year.
