Cee’s ‘Circles and Curves’ challenge is giving me the chance to show again this work by New England sculptor Antoinette Prien Schultze. ‘Life Entwined’ is circular in every way – suggesting not only the cycle of human life and love, but also the turn of the seasons, the circle of time itself.
It is made from Vermont Danby marble and weighs 4 tons. You can see it in the beautiful shore-side garden of the Ogunquit Museum of American Art in southern Maine. I have written more about the Museum HERE. It is one of the most beautifully situated galleries in the world, and well worth a visit for the setting alone.
Another fine thing about Ogunquit is the Marginal Way, a cliff top path along the rugged shore. It was here I found this natural sculpture which also fits the challenge.

Oh how very beautiful and circular this sculpture is. WOW!! The wood is great too. 🙂
Glad you like them, Cee. Thought you’d like the sculpture.
I totally agree with you, Tish that the Ogunquit Museum is wonderful as is much of Maine, where I have spent a great deal of time. I am hoping that next summer I will be spending time on Isle-au-Haut which is an Island in the Penobscot Bay, Maine and if I do, I will definitely take time out to visit the museum. Thank you once again for a very interesting post. Janet:)
Lucky you to have spent so much time in Maine, and with more to come. Which makes me think. Oh, the fish chowder – even if it is too hot for soup today.
