Tatarian honeysuckle #2

Tatarian honeysuckle, Lonicera tatarica, collected in Norway in 2009. These are monsters. I love them. The last image with pot is a virtual, of course.

"These are monsters"

Indeed. Firewood with some shoots still attached.

I like how some of the hollows look like faces. Like something out of a fairytale

Looks very inspirative. Reminds me on sculptures by Henry Moore :)

Henry Moore? Which one? Because this one (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Moore) has done nothing of the sort.

Sometimes the holes are very important detail on Moore's sculptures.

Agreed. But that still leaves us with the problem of this log (not) being a reminiscence of Moore's work.

I did. Haven't found anything of the sort though.

You need more visual training :)

Do you think that everything with a hole in it is similar to some Moore's sculpture? "If that be the case", and it's pretty obvious that it is, then, of course, this log could be such a reminder. Then again, so could be something like this: http://img2.photographersdirect.com/img/19309/wm/pd1252788.jpg

Post some URLs, so that I can train my eye, please. Not the ones you already posted. No sculpture on those photos is alike this piece of wood.
