ROADSIDE SHOCKER----WORLD FAMOUS PERSON STANDING NAKED IN THE GRASS
DRIVING BY--I RECOGNIZED HIM IMMEDIATELY---He is none other than the world's most perfect man.
Will show you a better shot of him later.
Meantime, I'm also stunned to see a famous warrior riding in the grass.
And cows idling the afternoon away atop a boat.
All this-- outside an ordinary looking house in the countryside near Cheney, Washington.
With some difficulty I turned around and made my way there---parked in a side yard.
A beautiful dragon greeted me.
And a lion--so I took a selfie--two Leo's smiling
Near a gargoyle
And my favorite---a gleaming bull
Does not intimidate Miss America
Visited a room full of icons and denizens
And another room full.
Thus far, I've not met a soul---only a sign saying feel free to walk around.
A large ape atop that shed.
You can imagine the questions I have by now.
Suddenly many of them are answered--this is a rural fine arts gallery.
With a quirky flair
Are you curious what one of these would cost?
Here's the price tag on the glossy bull
And if you didn't recognize the world famous man--it's Michelangelo's David. You can have him for about $2,000. And the world famous warrior is El Cid (I think)
Eventually I met the owner and learned that these statues are made of aluminum--in China. Bronze has become very expensive. for more info google Way out West Antiques--Spokane
RANDY PHILOSOPHIZES: Many of my richest experiences occur when I respond to my curiosity.
