A little bit of Dublin in Minneapolis

Every time Alex and I have visited the Sculpture Garden I have been intrigued by this one sculpture (besides the Cherry in Spoon). It is a rabbit on a bell. It felt very familiar to me. It reminded me of these sculptures that were around Dublin during our visit several years ago.

I had gotten Joe to mimic the pose of the "running rabbit" when we were in Dublin. I guess that is why those sculptures have always stuck with me.

Naturally, during Joe's visit, we had him to do the same thing. He's such a good sport . . . or just goofy.

However, as I was going through photos to show the Dublin photo I came across this photo. The "rabbit on bell" WAS in Dublin or we have a replica. That is why it seemed so familiar.
