Surprising Sarasota

The unveiling of the challenge quilts, portraying Sarasota Florida, was on Monday night. For some reason I don't have a picture of the first one, although I could swear I took one. Oh well.

 

If you didn't know, Sarasota is the home of the Ringling Circus and coincidentally it was just announced a couple days ago that Ringling Circus is calling it quits in May after 146 years.



This is a copy of the gigantic sculpture at the marina in Sarasota of the sailor and nurse after the war ended.  If you look at it from either side, you can see another guy and gal.



Have no idea what this represents.  The unveiling is blind.



Yes, and Sarasota has sunsets and water.

 

I happen to know that this does represent Sarasota, knowing the artist.  If you don't know, Florida is the largest cattle population in the United States.  The purple cow has a history in Sarasota.



I am guessing that this is pictures of various happenings around Sarasota.



This is mine.



This represents a war memorial.



This one has me a bit baffled.  Flowers, greenery, windows and sky?
