Weekend Reflections - Full Metal Robe



Some of my followers might have seen this before. This is a beautiful exhibit in the Seattle Art Museum called, "Some/One" by Do-Ho Suh, made up of thousands of dog tags.



Here is a close up of the tags.



Another shot of the dog tag robe.



My reflection inside the robe as I'm taking a picture of it.



Here is a little more info on the sculpture.

What an unusual reflection, inside an artwork. And intereseting information too. I wonder what the connection is between dogs and a robe?

Hi Pat,
Sorry I haven't been around lately to comment. This is an awesome sculpture. Sure makes one pause and think. Many. many lives are represented there.
Also. I hope you are getting over your cold and are feeling better.

Wow - - what an amazing piece of art! Your reflection posts have inspired me to look at things with a "new eye". I took a couple of those pictures this weekend - - but haven't gotten around to tweaking them yet - - and don't know if they are ready for publishing or not.
I, too, pray you are feeling better and hubby is not sick.

What an unusual view of "dog tags" and a unique contribution to Weekend Reflections.

It is gorgeous!

It's disconcerting too, even though it does not have names of soldiers.

I love it when Museums allow photography. Thanks for sharing this one -- I actually *get* what the artist is saying, which always makes me feel good.

You got great pictures and it is perfect for this meme!

I remember this from your last time but I still find it incredibly impressive. Great reflection inside the robe, it took me a minute to figure it out.
