Beware of surreal cyclists!

by Helen Hooker January. 28, 2011 6059 views

I spotted this rather surreal sculpture outside the sculpture park at Goodwood some time before Christmas. The light that day was very flat and the sky was very grey so I made a mental note to come back when the weather was better. The sky was a lovely shade of blue this afternoon so I took a trip up to Goodwood armed with my camera and polarising filter to see if the sculpture was still there. I??m not quite sure what to make of this ?? I can??t decided whether it??s supposed to be an elephant that??s been swallowed by its own trunk or some sort of species so far unknown to mankind ?? all suggestions gratefully received!

I am amazed there is a tricycle big enough for the dear creature! I think it's head forgot to grow? Strange for sure.

My guess, a bombardon is come to life.

A badly rendered Cartman or a mutated headless elephant on a trike? You be the judge.

No, honestly, I suspect the sculptor's been watching too many South Park episodes.

Yes, those cunning, devious bastards never know when to stop - especially the ones on tricycles.

I have three words to say to anyone who dares disagree: "respect my authorit-I!"

swallow the clouds would be possible as well, perhaps a bit more optimistic than Marjories idea
