Sculpture and Arcimboldo

Photo by Roger Tomas
Somehow this sculpture is fitting for Thanksgiving.

Philip Haas made the 15 foot tall painted fiberglass sculpture. But the painting Winter by Arcimboldo is his inspiration, so Arcimboldo gets top billing. It's part of the Arcimboldo show at the National Gallery.
