Heads, we win...

Hmmmm.

I know art is subjective, and lawn art in particular obeys its own unruly rules, and I'm not saying this isn't pretty or anything...

...but didn't the ancient Romans put the heads of their enemies on fence spikes as a sign of warning?

Maybe I'm overanalyzing.

Right you are. I won't tell you what the Mayans used to do.

Jean Spitzer said...

Still chuckling form the previous comment. . . what a concatenation.

The Queen of Hearts in Alice and Wonderland said "Off with their heads" and that came into mine the moment I saw this, despite the wonderful architecture and terrific vantage point. Also the three headed dog in Hairy Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. LOL Funny how one image leads your thoughts into another one. But isn't that how the human brain works? :~)

Laurie, that never would have occurred to me. I was hoping you were fishing for captions because I think I could have finally come up with something.

PJ said...

There seems to be a portal on the plinth. Is this where they pick up their newspaper? Maybe they're making a statement?

Mister Earl said...

Come on, Karin, let's have a caption!

I just noticed that the archway to the left, depending on how you look at it, could be a surfboard or a big disc!

WV: Pernetti, who I think live in that house.

Laurie said...

C'mon, hiker. Let's have a caption!

Trish said...

Yes, the Romans did...I was a "Roman" in school and it is one of the lovely things I learned about the group.

"I TOLD you not to pi$$ me off or I'd put you on a post!"

Hats are a problem, but I have no trouble multi-tasking.

altadenahiker said...

It's not you, it's me

altadenahiker said...

It's complicated.

altadenahiker said...

Oh this is nothing. I've got another up my a**.

Mister Earl said...

Wonderful, Karin!

I'll bet it took a lot of "slontst" to come up with those. And you certainly have it!

Laurie said...

I knew I could count on you people. Altadenahiker, you win a special prize. (I'll work on it...)

Until tomorrow!

Dixie Jane said...

I told you she was two-faced!

Mister Earl said...

Gives a whole new meaning to "high forehead."
