Sculpture Garden – University of Saskatchewan.

A garden of a less “flowery” sort today…these photos were taken at the sculpture garden on the grounds of the University of Saskatchewan, which my hubby and I visited in July of last year.  Bill Epp, a visual arts professor at the University, started the garden back in 1993, and more works were added in 1997 and 2006.  These photos represent a smidgen of what is available to see.

I just had to include a photo of the “hand” – I actually found it a bit unnerving.  How do you feel about it (and the other works)?






  1. Hi Sheryl. I think that hand is a bit creepy to be honest! Especially those fingernails… 😉 Out of all of them the last one is the only one that really appeals. I like natural stone and rock and the others look a bit ‘molded’.

  2. I agree that the hand is a little creepy. But how wonderful it is to wander outside around giant sculptures. Years ago, my husband, daughter, and I went to Storm King in New York, where we had a similar experience.

  3. This is a wonderful idea. I really like sculpture used in gardens and there’s no better way to show off large pieces like these ones. The painted nail on the hand is a bit weird to me but otherwise I like it.

  4. reminds me of the hand in harry potter and the hand in that old childrens series, whose name escapes me, I’d prefer it without varnished nails to be honest 🙂 – thanks for stopping by and approving of my post for gardening in spring – I can imagine that you too cannot wait for warmer weather and sunshine and flowers – even colder where you are!

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
