Beach Art

On Monday went for a walk and beer with Eddie.  Sun shone, a lovely day, especially sitting outside at ‘Spoons on the Marina sipping good beers from Franklins Brewery.  Walked back into town along the front to call in on an old school friend of Eddies, a local fisherman and artist who builds creations from beach stones and cement.  Sadly he was absent from his compound, but I took a few photos through the fence.  He gets to have a piece of beach because he is a licenced fisherman and has the right to keep his boat and kit there, but the Council sometimes get a bit uppity about the art.

He draws on many sources – above I suspect Easter Island heads and maybe Mayan art?

African masks become figures complete with navels.

And perhaps a local Herring Gull with a fancy hat??
