Weekly photo challenge: Big

Like giant pebbles – I’d love to caress the smooth surface!

No, these are not giant candy-coated pebbles…

This is one of the sculptures gracing the streets of Wellington. This one is called ‘Protoplasm’ by sculptor Phil Price. Made from composite plastic and steel, Protoplasm stands 6 – 8 m high. During the gale force winds we endured last week, the kermit-like discs spun crazilyon their axis, like whirling dervishes. It was incredible – I’ve never seen Protoplasm so alive.

In case you’re like me and have no idea what a protoplasm is, with reference to the above, Protoplasm is the active part of any living cell.

It certainly lived up to it’s name last week!
