Very very clever...what are they made of?

Those cyclists seem to be cheating...report it to Wiggo, and he'll sort 'em out, just as soon as he is done with BoE and other "wrongs"...
Bill Phillips: Mountain bikes with stabilisers isn't something you see every day. It might be Sir Wiggo before longsmile

Bill Phillips: I really liked them Peter

I can imagine you thinking "just right for s/c" when you spotted these, Bill
Bill Phillips: I didn't take a lot of pictures but I confess posting this did cross my mind grin

All I can say is LET THE GAMES BEGIN! And with no better song of all time!!!

A great bit of wickerage Bill. Don't let on to Chad.
Bill Phillips: Why does he collect wickerage?
Are they for posh people for bonfire night.
Bill Phillips: Down South all things are possible Latte
I like these sculptures Bill, the cycling ones work well.
Bill Phillips: My favourite is the wheelchair tennis player Fred

Yes, rather good. Disappointed they cheated on the mountain bikes though!
Bill Phillips: I wonder if the supports were added for the show?

Love this type of art work Bill so life like.
Bill Phillips: It is very clever Peter.
I like that the sculptor is showing pride with the olympics.
Bill Phillips: In typically English fashion many have been quite negative about the whole thing, but once it starts we will all enjoy it and put on a good show....and lose money grin

At a local mall, we have a cow's statue woven in the same way and about 10m high. The 'wicker works' is then stuck full of ground cover type plants for the summer.

Those mountain bikes looks usable.
Bill Phillips: They are real Louis
So the BMX boys have to make do with Hampton Court instead of the Olympics, eh?
Bill Phillips: I'd rather watch BMX bikes than beach volleyball or synchronised swimming Tom grin
A step beyond making a basket smile Good fun.
Bill Phillips: Almost a quantum leap John

These are very well made Bill, a good find.
Bill Phillips: I liked them Chad.
They are eerily lifelike! Well spotted.
Bill Phillips: They are aren't they? I passed them every day and paused to look each time

Oh very clever. At least the canoe could actually float. Are the wheels missing off the bike stabilisers?
Bill Phillips: Probably nicked
These are rather good "sculptures" Bill, I guess they take just as much pre-thought as one made from stone.
Bill Phillips: I like them Brian they have a feeling of life about them
Quite cool Bill! I love it.
Bill Phillips: I liked them very much Richard
There's some work gone into these, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Certainly has Graeme and the result is excellent
