Iowa Sculpture

Corncob Sculpture

Corn Sculpture Β©2008 Bo Mackison

You never quite know what you are going to see while driving down the highway in Iowa. Near Iowa City, I came across this interesting metal sculpture of – yes, of course – a yellow cob of corn in a green husk.

Because of popular request, I have asked Robin of Bountiful Healing to share her links for interesting vegetables and fruits, too. Always aiming to please and keep the customers happy.

So, yes, Robin has graciously supplied me with the site to her “veg porn” as it is lovingly called.

First the asparagus – you have to look for the second photo.

And if you still are curious, then there are flowers that also got in the act.

So there…enjoy. Robin has a lot of other great photos to see, so while you are there, explore a bit.

  1. Thought – for a moment – that I was crazy thinking it was a cob of corn. HA! Nice image!!!!

  2. This should be safe from mice (except of course the Metal Munching Moon Mice from Rocky & Bulwinkle). πŸ™‚

  3. LOL Nice capture. πŸ™‚

  4. Ron in L.A. says:

  5. Ah, Ron. I was going to link this to Robin, but I chickened out. (Note weak attempt at farm humor…) πŸ™‚

  6. This also reminded me of Robin’s veggie porn LOL

    I wonder what made whoever did this piece do this piece? Did he or she wake up in the middle of the night and say… “Hey Im gonna sculp corn”?

    Nice capture Bo!

  7. I love this.

    And I see you chickened out, Bo. You should have gone for it. πŸ˜‰

  8. P.S. I think this is much more impressive than my veggie porn.

  9. So Robin – are we the veggie porn queens?
    Hmmm. That sounds kind of bad. Oops! πŸ™‚

  10. LOL! It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it. πŸ˜‰

  12. So you call this veggie porn. Where is the other veggie porn at?

    I think it is funny to have a sculpture of a n ear of corn, even if it is in Iowa.

  13. Robin has graciously supplied me with the sites to her veg porn.
