Odd Art

6th floor statue
6th floor statue

Every day i take the elevator down to the 6th floor, which is where the hotel lobby, cafe, fitness/spa center and swimming pool is located.  As the doors open, I am greeted by a small statue, shown here. 

I’m not quite sure what to make of it, but i usually step out of the elevator, cock my head to one side and contemplate its strangeness.  I still haven’t figured out what it is.  It sorta looks like a little guy balancing on something . . . or a very well-endowed, disproportioned individual.  In a way, it reminds me of a child balancing on a father’s raised feet, simulating the sensation of flying.  Let me know what your artistic impression is.

In navigating through the many mall passageways, i came across the below installation.  It was still being set up, so there was no name or artist statement.  I call it Grass People.

Yesterday, i visited UP (University of Philippines) Diliman, located in Quezon City.  Whilst driving around the area we saw the following statues, which at first i thought was real.  That white one must be real special.


Later we visited a shoe store that housed the Guinness Record for largest pair of shoes made.  The entire area is well-known for their hand made shoes. 

big shoes!

Those shoes are about 18 feet long, 7 feet wide and 6 feet high.  The material used to make theses shoes could be used to make 250 regular pairs of shoes!  What i want to know is how long are those shoe laces?


  1. That small statue looks like a hose nozzel. Maybe it’s used to demonstrate where people should be standing on a volleyball court.
