My hoomans are members at Chatsworth house in Derbyshire the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.
Friday 9th September they went to the members preview viewing of the Beyond Limits Sotheby’s at Chatsworth. It’s now in its 10th year and brings together leading artists work spread across the gardens.
Better still it’s included in the garden entry fee and runs between 10th September -30th October 2016.
You get given a map with the locations of the 19 Sculptures.
But I’m a hound who like walking on grass so we didn’t do them in order. We started at 19. Lilas
Then to 18. Tear which was really cool as I could see my reflection in it.
On the lake is 17. Time and Again I thought it was a bit like water lilies.
Then to 16. La Montagne who had her boobies on display.
I wasn’t looking !
Up the hill from the lake to 15. Hexad III
Star then lost me as I found 14. Taichi Arch see looked left.
When she eventually found me we moved to 13. Habitacion Vegatal XV (Dobie Pasaje) where again I could see my reflection and it looked like a forest in it.
Down the path and up towards the ring pond. 10. Energy 2 was down the path between the hedges so not very easy to get in on the shot.
Three other sculptures by Wendell Castle were all by the pond. 9. Wandering mountain is a good example of why I went.
And now with me.
I’ll let you decide which looks better. Moving onto 8. Temptation
7. Above within beyond.
Up to 11.Der Gurk (German for gerkin) Hoodad said this would make 1000’s of Big Macs. I don’t like gerkin.
We went through to the maze and had some milk as we had done a lot of walking. The next one 12. Chaos Meteoro involved an up hill climb.
Star went up fast as usual – young blood (I’m 3 years her senior)
It was a nice one and well worth the climb.
As we were at the top path we came down the hill listening to the cascade water.
Listening to all the water made me thirsty so I had another drink.
Again another sculpture with boobies out 4. Donna Sdraiata. Still not looking.
We went down the lawn to 6. Fruitcake which was huge you can see it as you drive into the grounds.
Up the lawn to 5. Black Beast that was like a large Beatle. I got close to it but observed the signs and didn’t touch it.
Walked along the path to the sensory garden. The sculpture was celebrating the embrace between (3) Hector and Andromache. Before he went to his death in the battle of Troy.
In the sensory garden they had some lambs ear sage. I have done a bit of Photoshop to it….. Bol !
Star wanted to chase the next sculpture 2. Foilium as it was like a large ball.
We walked down the path to the house.
Before seeing number 1. Red Mountain Head as the last one.
The gardens at Chatsworths are fab any time of year but when you get the chance to see sculptures as well its a even better. Follow the link to Chatsworth website to read more about Chatsworth or better still book your tickets to go.
My apologies for a longer than normal blog but it was such a great night out.
