Orava avenue

Finnish word of the day: orava = squirrel

In Pallas, after finishing our hike and hitting the Visitor Center’s shop, we walked a kilometer to reach our last shelter. The weather was great, there was no wind and we chilled there, proud of our accomplishment. Along this easy kilometer, we discovered small sculptures representing squirrels in accoutrements from different cultures. The explanations from the artists were quite vague: he said that there was not much meaning to that work of art, that sometimes things pop up in your mind, y’know… In any case, it was fun to see 😉

Do you like these squirrels?

  1. Bonsoir Samuel,
    Oui, j’adore les écureuils ! 🙂
    Je comprends la dififculté de ces artistes à expliquer leur inspiration : une étincelle qui se produit, par la conjugaison de phénomènes souvent imperceptibles car relevant d’une sensibilité personnelle, ces fulgurances étant le plus fréquemment incontrôlables aussi bien à l’arrivée qu’au départ ! J’ai vu cela en dessin ou en peinture : tu l’as et puis, soudainement, tu ne l’as plus…;-)
    Merci pour ces belles photos qui, parce qu’elles sont extra-ordinaires, nous éloignent momentanément de la réalité quotidienne et font du bien à l’âme. 🙂
