A Giant Acorn

Art in Public Places

This massive acorn sculpture, created by John Watkins,  is located across from City Market in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Squirrels reign in this city.  They jump from limb to limb.  They scramble up and down the bark of trees.  They get under your feet while walking.  I swear I almost tripped over two of these rambunctious creatures, in the middle of a busy intersection, no less.  So I laughed and laughed when I saw this Acorn--a fitting icon for this lovely city.
