Table/chair combo

This piece of street sculpture has fascinated me for a long time. I pass it regularly on my journey to work.

Look at the table – not only does it have legs – it has hands and feet as well!

Wait a minute! Look at that! It’s something I hadn’t noticed until I stopped to take the photo – not hands and feet but one hand and three feet!

How strange! I wonder what the artist was thinking.

Google tells me that ‘(three feet) - (one hand) = 81.28 centimetres’. Fascinating!

Hello all
You have inspired me to try and find out a bit more about this eccentric sculpture. I'll keep you posted.

Awesome. I am really curious about the table. The couch would be awesome in a child's room....young adult if it is made of something extremely hard (and I am assuming it is). Michele sent me (it's still up).

Hello again bluest ... I've discovered that the artist is a local lady called Karen Kennedy. The table and chair are fashioned from hand painted ceramic tiles. The three feet / one hand theme is still a mystery though!

I love the tiled couch/table! So colorful and fun! I really like quirky finds like that.

Glad Michele sent me today to say hi!
