Whale Sale

Back on Martha's Vineyard this holiday weekend -- and somewhat attuned to the culture after a long summer here, so I wasn't entirely surprised to run across this outside the craft show at the Agricultural Hall.

Some of the monster mammals were fenced.

One was remarkably literary -- and not entirely plausible to my way of thinking.

This nautical whale offered a sunnier twist on the local motif.

While the pseudo-Aztec/Hindu whale seemed to have drifted in from another world.

To read all about this art project, see here. We didn't stay around to learn who prevailed in the auction, but I hope the charities did well.
