Photohunt: Artificial


Big Ram at Wagin

This week's photohunt is artificial. This one was very tough. I didn't want to go out and take a picture of some artificial item in my kitchen cabinet. But I remembered one of the Australian 'Big' things we saw on our trip to Western Australia. "Big thing?" you say...

The "Big Things" are a group of large structures in Australia - huge artificial statues located around the country. They are somewhat cult phenomenon. Nothing like going out of the way to see a large roadside attraction. Here's a bit on the Big Things from wikipedia.

Here is another shot - yep... he is definitely a ram. :)

Wow! Big and interesting, indeed! Great take on the theme!

LOL-so glad to see that people can use their creativity, time and money on 'big things' that can give someone a chuckle now and then:) Great take of this theme, menehune

Hi Marta, great photos and take on this week's theme. The Big Things statues are pretty cool. Judging from the trees around this statue, your ram is huge!

Have a great weekend!

That's a neat one!

How funny. I've never heard of the "Big Things". They are definitely artificial.

I love funky roadside attractions like this. Thanks for the intro to the Big Things!

Fun take on the theme! Never heard of Big Things before but it looks like they are indeed very popular.

Oh what a hoot! My first thought was - we have one of these over here in Australia. And then I read the post.

We actually have one just like that near Canberra too. :)


I love your take on the theme! Thanks for sharing.

I just remembered a huge bull cow that I could have used today!! Nuts!!

GREAT photo!

Mine's up, too! I hope you get some time to visit.
