Just a quick post with a picture of a beautiful piece of LARGE woodworking…

Of the segments, 2 are concave, the others are convex. I know that is probably not the correct terminology since the segments are not “curved” as in a lens where you would use those words to describe the shape, but it seems to be fitting… so, I used those words. :-)

Anyway, this piece of work is about 6 feet across.

I just thought it was interesting – don’t know much more about it though…

Enjoy!!

Pretty cool…I’ll have to wander over there and take a look at this (I live a few blocks from the DeYoung). Is it inside or outside?

@live4ever – it’s inside, before the ticket counter – enter by the cafe and head towards the main lobby and it’s right there.

We didn’t pay to get into the museum since we were on a tight budget this trip, but still saw several beautiful works of art – this one being the most intriguing to me, being a woodworker… :-)

I first saw these a few years ago. We’ve become members since. They are really interesting looking, but they are just benches for people to sit on.
