Ask The Animals

These are the new animal sculptures in front of the Virginia Children's Hospital. They were meant to be played with and sat on. My favorite is this fox.

The otter was designed to be a bench.

A little one was already playing with the bear and cubs. He's found some friends at the hospital now.

And this 7 foot rabbit is beautiful and shining.

“But ask the animals what they think—let them teach you;
    let the birds tell you what’s going on.
Put your ear to the earth—learn the basics.
    Listen—the fish in the ocean will tell you their stories.
Isn’t it clear that they all know and agree
    that God is sovereign, that he holds all things in his hand—
Every living soul, yes,
    every breathing creature?”
Job 12

Those are awesome. I think the fox is my favorite too. I hope you were at the children's hospital to take pictures and not because one of the girls was there.

What a great display for the children to enjoy. You have brought back to mind some giant stuffed animals that were in my eye doctor's office when I was very young, but they were in a cage and kids could not touch them.
