Skywatch Friday - Get the Point

More sunny days ahead in San Francisco to visit this 60 ft. outdoor sculpture by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen called "Cupid's Span".
Different angles of the bow & arrow artwork give you a different perspective and background.
You can see a few people at the base of the sculpture to give you an idea how huge it is.
I wrote about this sculpture a few years ago, but I could not resist having another post about it when I visited the city recently.

Happy Skywatch Friday!

It's an interesting arrow. It's first for me to see it because I didn't check your blog a few years ago. :)

I love this! It reminds me of the "Gifts from the Olympian Gods" installations that we had around London last year. I love the blue skies too. It's been pretty horrible here for the past week.
