July 06, 2014- Castlegar Sculpture Walk Sculpture of the Day “Tundra”

Today’s sculpture feature is another work of art that is large and in charge on Columbia Avenue. As you can see “Tundra” is a steel work that stands tall outside of Kootenay Market.

“Tundra” is a shaggy musk ox created by Maryland’s Virginia Sperry.  I am so impressed with the detail behind “Tundra”; Sperry crafted every bit of the musk ox perfectly from each shaggy bit of hair to its curled horns.  Even though the musk ox is intimidating with its horns and hooves it is also friendly looking, a gentle giant made of steel!

This morning I saw so many people on the streets taking in Castlegar’s Sculpture Walk and Canada Day packs of people were walking around with their voting cards viewing all of the impressive artwork part of the exhibit.  Do not forget you can vote until the end of September for this year’s People’s Choice Award!

PS. It has been a beauty of a week here in the Kootenay Boundary; but seriously we need it cool down so this girl can get some sleep!
