Not Just Driftwood

If you haven’t already done so, first of all please look at the photo of the horse here, which is the prompt for this post. There’s also a list of links to many more responses.

Here, should you need it, is proof that the whole can be more than the sum of the parts. The very term ‘driftwood’ suggests something accidental or haphazard; but there is nothing like that about this lovely piece of three-dimensional art. Parts, once random, now co-ordinate; pieces, once parts of living organisms, are now dead, yet together they form a representation of a living thing of quite another kind, and each have their place in a work which enriches the experience of those who view it. And in real life, drifters can become contributors, and enrich the lives of others.

It's kind to share!
