The Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum, in Decorah, Iowa, is not just a single building, but rather an entire block of them on Water Street, a number of historic structures brought in from other locales, and several more. On our recent visit in late March, we found that one of those on the street side was being used as a temporary art gallery, for showcasing the artistic talents of local youngsters. While most were drawings and paintings, this plaster, winged, pit bull sculpture really drew my eye, for obvious reasons. I don't know how old Matthew is or what he had in mind--there was nothing at all about that on the short label other than "Untitled"--but I do love his imagination. I had to share. 7.9-6

What a cool creative work by the artist behind it, it does make me wonder what he was thinking at the time, good one Nik, different can be good.

Perhaps he once had a pit bull that died and he thinks of him in doggy heaven, thus the wings? any case, I too like his creative thinking and it's a beautiful sculpture...good closeup and detail and an interesting post.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

'Nik', I thought to see some similarities with THIS ONE, with the difference however that the by me depicted 'Non Barkin Watchdog' contemporary art subject, hasn't flying capabilities, in contrary with Matthew, 😜 !
Seen and captured perfectly!
