Creature Creations - Larger Than Life - at the Arboretum

By Wilma Jozwiak

If you’ve vis­it­ed the Arbore­tum late­ly, you may have noticed some inter­est­ing new denizens. There’s Per­cy, the tor­toise, lum­ber­ing toward the pond, Friskie, the slaver­ing dog, strain­ing at the chain attached to a fire­plug, try­ing to get at Peach­es, the cat, pre­car­i­ous­ly perched in a met­al hoop — these and oth­ers are the imag­i­na­tive work of Edwin Falk, a sculp­tor who repur­pos­es pieces of machin­ery and oth­er bits and pieces to cre­ate whim­si­cal statuary. 

Those of you who have admired the won­der­ful­ly over­sized works artist Sam Bates placed in the fields around the Arbore­tum will also be delight­ed by a third instal­la­tion, com­plet­ed this spring.

All of the sculp­tures are for sale. If you are inter­est­ed, please con­tact us at info@​landisarboretum.​org for more information.

A dinosaur is also lurk­ing, join­ing the oth­er crea­tures as soon as his refur­bish­ing is complete!
