This week's theme: The Eye Of The Beholder

Many people say they like art, but most don't like all art. What is considered pleasing, what is considered good - even what is considered art, varies according to who is having the experience. This week, EBSQ's Art of the Day brings you a variety of art that is diverse in media, genre, style and purpose. We hope that you enjoy the experience.


Art: gopher  by Artist Carie  S
This gopher fairy was created by me and sold a few years ago. I think the scientific name of this guy is a pocket gopher? But I'm not too sure, I don't think he could fit in your pocket so I don't know why that is part of his name. Maybe the "namer" of this gopher had big pockets? We actually have these guyes in my yard and they are just crazy insane animals. They dig looooooong tunnels and make these big two foot high mounds all over my yard and they do this over night, like magic. When we first saw these tunnels and mounds of dirt we thought that aliens were doing it. But it was just this guy..... So I thought I have to make one of these tunnel digging guys and that is how it all started. The hat, the sharp toe nails,the goggles and the turtle helper.
