saddle foo dog

62f2053cf35f16ba34ba7c6b0a257facThis concept sketch is from the carousel work in progress in Albany, Oregon. Wood carvers are at work there creating a wonderful new menagerie carousel of animals from around the world, both real and fantastic. It is going to be spectacular. See all the designs here.

A foo dog, of course, is an ideal stander– the large figure at the outside of the row that does not move. The Chinese text on this one’s pearl reads “love”; my guess is that the one in Kekionga says “blackberry”. And, also of course, Kekionga’s carousel foo dog doesn’t have a cat companion.  That would be copying.
