The Giraffe and the Robin

Several years ago, our zoo installed a large, complicated metal sculpture.

This work of art greets visitors as they turn the corner or swirl around in the round-about at one end of the zoo grounds. Due to this location, I’d only glimpsed it while driving past — keeping my attention on traffic.

Recently I walked to the structure and got a better view. Here’s one portion.

As you can see…many animals and several types of plants are represented–including our friend, the giraffe. The lacy construction indicates color pattern, and gave an opportunity for a more common animal to set up housekeeping.

The Robin family has found a unique home site.
