Christmas at the Bridge

The fella who lives in the little trailer behind the old brick building at the bridge always puts out a quirky little Christmas display. 

This one is more restrained than previous efforts but I am captivated by its naive charm.

At least he gave it a go, I have no decorations.

A display of the heart for everyone to see! I am sure everyone living around comes this way at Christmas time to check if it is there.

Clearly assembled with love and joy. How sweet.

I like "yard art" or "found art" usually...and this sculptural piece definitely qualifies as an "installation." Those are the terms college professors devised to describe this kind of piece. However, I must say I'm curious as to the central black plastic? thing. I wonder what it represents...which is ok, cause art speaks to us all in different ways.

Well, he has it pretty well all covered . . . angels and lights and a tree and a cross. Maybe the black plastic-covered thing is a manger, to be uncovered on 12/25 at 12:01am.

I wondered about the black plastic myself, Barb. But at least there's a kitteh. And maybe June's suggestion is correct -- I'll let you all know . . .

Very original actually and full marks to him for using what he had available. Given the money we could all make a splendid display couldn't we. 😀

I would also be captivated by seeing this arrangement each year in person.

When I saw your first photograph, Vicki, I thought that perhaps it was some sort of doll house.

Please do keep us posted on the revelation of the black plastic.
